ABOUT THE SHOW
Traveling across the Atlantic, the 70-tonne sailing ship Arka Kinari docks at New Farm Park for an exciting, free concert and multimedia show.
By day the ship hosts workshops on environmental sustainability and conversations with local communities. As night falls, Arka Kinari transforms into a captivating stage for a free performance by Filastine and Nova featuring their collisions of psychedelic beats, Javanese post-folk and analog synths. Their music and cinematic visuals are a powerful call to action for climate change, as they envision a future beyond the carbon economy.
Launched in 2019, Arka Kinari has embarked on a journey across the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Pacific, reviving ancient maritime trade routes. Powered by solar energy and shared at public waterfronts, Arka Kinari is both a message and a method. See it before it sets sail again.
This is a free performance for the whole community.
Part of ΩHM 2024.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Filastine & Nova are a multimedia duo working to undermine borders. Their music collides psychedelic trap beats with Javanese post-folk, musique concréte, analogue synths and acoustic strings. National Public Radio calls them “powerfully political and distinctly global,” and Pitchfork says “they sound less like `world’ music and more like music from another world.” Another world is exactly what they aim to create, using sound, video, design, and dance to express a radically different vision of the possible. Authors of a dozen critically-acclaimed albums and touring performances, Filastine & Nova have appeared at music and theater festivals across the world, such as Sónar (ES), Downtown Cairo Arts (EG), Decibel (US), Les Vieilles Charrues (FR), Fusion Festival (DE) and Mutek (JP). Expect to find them anywhere, transforming friction into beauty.
Arka Kinari is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
