Nexus Arts is delighted to announce a 3-show series of contemporary music from 6 of South Australia’s most dynamic and exciting new artists.
The Interplay performance series is the culmination of a year long program that in 2023 saw 6 musicians from culturally diverse and First Nations backgrounds take part in one-on-one career guidance, mentorship, and group activities including a week-long creative intensive. The yearlong program aims to bolster creativity, connection, and community in an intercultural and supportive environment.
Daniel Phan, an Asian-Australian singer-songwriter, draws inspiration from his faith, ethnicity, and personal journey to create music that bridges indie, soul, and R’n’B influences, connecting with others through heartfelt storytelling. On Saturday 18 November he’ll be performing alongside Hong Kong-Australian actor, musician, and theatre-maker Sam Lau who combines his acting and musical talents to create a warm and melancholic sound, both healing and joyful. His compositions often start as spoken word poems, evolving into songs.
