Touring as part of the 2023 Connecting Places Program
The Merindas are the collective force of Ballardong Whadjuk Nyoongar woman Kristel Kickett and Candice Lorrae of Jawoyn and Thursday Island heritage.
Formed in 2012, The Merindas began their career singing Motown hits for the premiere of The Sapphires movie. What was meant to be a one-off show soon bloomed into a full-time career, with the dynamic duo now having performed over 400 shows in the last nine years, including supporting international stars Brandy and Craig David.
Now based in Melbourne, these soul sisters are trail-blazing with their innovative style of Indigenous music, which they describe as “electronic pop with a dance-hall feel, alongside hip hop and R&B influences”. Think TLC, Destiny’s Child and Salt n Pepa – but with double the amount of swagger and sass!
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience the infectious energy and soaring vocals of this home-grown, international-quality act.
