Known for her stellar vocal force, tight beats, outrageous costuming and big pop sounds, Ngaiire is a musical force of nature.
Hailing from the Eastern Highlands and New Ireland provinces of Papua New Guinea, she has forged a career that effortlessly crosses genre and artform, teasing at the mainstream. After a career that has seen this neo-soul powerhouse tour with the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Alicia Keys, Blue King Brown and the Australian Art Orchestra, release two critically acclaimed albums and collaborate with artists including Birdz and Flume, Ngaiire is suiting up for a big 2021 with the release of a new album on the horizon. Darwin Festival will be among the first to hear the new tracks, along with some long-time old favourites.
‘Like some kind of neo-soul Wizard of Oz, her voice echoes like a spectral presence.’
Sydney Morning Herald
