Event:
A new beginnings spring festival on now
FREE entry and all are welcome! This is not just a game, but a real event with no entry cost and an awful lot of fun.

It is now some five years since the New Beginnings Spring Festival and to celebrate there is a huge program of live music, dance performances, workshops, food and market stalls. There will also be an array of international foods and cultural handicrafts.



This is all going to be held on Saturday, 16th November 2019, 12:00 noon to 8.00 pm at Tumbalong Park Darling Harbour, Sydney.

Some of the entertainers include:

* L-Fresh The Lion
L-Fresh The Lion has taken his music to the whole world. Two years after releasing his ARIA-nominated album Become, along with festival appearances all over Australia, he addressed the United Nations Headquarters in New York in late 2018. He shared the stage in London with the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate, Pakistani human rights and female education activist Malala Yousafzai.



* Ajak Kwai
This lady is an icon of Australian Sudanese music. Her music is full of old soul music, together with an afro-beats representing the richness of her South Sudanese roots. Her performances are totally vibrant and her unique voice has captured so many people both nationally and internationally.

She will sing in Arabic, Sudanese or English, and will make up a vivid picture of her Dinka heritage. She was exiled from her homeland, her family and singing is her life now. Her tales are those of exile, freedom and hope.



* JamarzOnMarz
JamarzOnMarz actually began as a musician watching Lisa Simpson play the saxophone. Because of her, he began playing and at the age of nine years old, he was already playing the alto and soprano saxophone. By fourteen he had his first song already written.

2018 saw JamarzOnMarz go to the top in the charts. He played the saxophone which enabled him to perform with megastar Solange Knowles across four sold-out shows at the Sydney Opera House.



The SSI New Beginnings Spring Festival is a family-friendly celebration of the talents and cultural heritage that people from migrant and refugee backgrounds bring to their new homes.
