Producer and DJ Kuya James is launching a brand-new album and to celebrate we’re throwing a Pinoy Street Party in Festival Park. This futuristic festivity brings the vibrant energy of the Philippines’ 7000 islands to the heart Darwin.

Kuya James’ musical influences range from traditional rhythms and samples to the retro pop that surrounded him growing up – from Manila to Marrara. Tracks from his debut album ISA and remixed favourites will bring an upbeat party vibe that is guaranteed to get the dancefloor jumping. What better way to launch this new release than with a dance crew, guest singers, visuals, remixes and songs all coming together in one epic celebration of our city’s contemporary Filipino culture.
