Ajak Kwai (Leaps and Bounds Music Festival)

Leaps and Bounds Music Festival brings the warmth that our thriving music community inevitably craves at this time of year, and provides continued support to local artists, venues, and businesses.

Come nurture and celebrate our unique music scene at The Tramway Hotel with Ajak Kwai, on the land of the Wurundjeri people.

Australia’s contemporary South Sudanese songstress, Ajak Kwai brings her stunning, distinctive vocals to The Tramway Hotel for Leaps & Bounds Festival.

Performed in English, some Arabic and Ajak’s native language, Dinka, Ajak honours the traditions of her homeland, yet defying stereotype in what is best described as “modern South Sudanese rock”.

Don’t miss Ajak Kwai with her stunning, distinctive vocals playing a special intimate show in duo mode alongside longtime collaborator and lead guitarist Kumar Shome.

“Red Sands” is out everywhere now.
