Our 2022 Line Up

Baba Bruja
Baba Bruja are an all original 12-piece Afrobeat Dance Orchestra based in nipaluna/ Hobart. The ensemble consists of some of luturuwita/ Tasmania’s best loved jazz and funk musicians and features the original compositions of non-binary bandleader and trombonist Stevie McEntee.

The band’s sound is big, raucous, and dynamic; when they get cooking audiences can’t help but move their bodies! Baba Bruja has become known for infectious melodies, rhythmic drive and extended dynamic solos that really take the band and listeners on a sonic journey. Their music, while firmly rooted in the musical traditions of Afrobeat, incorporates elements from many different musical cultures from around the world.

Formed in 2017, the band have performed across lutruwita/ Tasmania at festivals including Dark Mofo, Falls Festival, A Festival Called Panama, Taste of Tasmania, Party in the Paddock, MONA FOMA and Clarence Jazz Festival and can’t wait to rock out for this very special Festival of Voices set!

His current band The Roving Commission features old “Weddoes” bandmate Squeezebox Wally on Piano Accordion and a rotating schedule of talented performers to keep the party alive with Mick’s unique mix of folk, roots and country. 

Mick’s ever-evolving talents as a writer and performer defines a career as intriguing as it is enduring.
