We invite you to come along to our latest performance project, Foco Nuevo. This regular music event will be held on the last Friday of each month and will feature a diversity of Brisbane singer-songwriters and musicians. We’ve just returned from our fourth trip to Cuba and are keen to draw on our experiences and integrate them into this new project.

Foco Nuevo is a reference to Brisbane’s FOCO Club, a lively and alternative performance space which ran on a weekly basis during the late 1960s. The mix of music and social issues has given a particular character to Brisbane music over several decades, and has never been far from the inspiration for our songs. Combined with our long association with Latin American music, Foco Nuevo aims to contribute to this current of artistic activity.

For this month’s Foco Nuevo, we will be joined by Phil Monsour and Sonderlinge. Phil Monsour, with his powerful songs explores the themes of conflict in the Middle East. Sonderlinge, a world music a cappella group will be singing Bulgarian, Georgian and South African songs.

Hope to see you there,

Lachlan and Sue
