Mahikai Sound System Listening Party

Hello West side,
Big thanks and praise for a new day.

We are a collective based in Sunshine, who have spent the last 3 months building our custom speaker boxes inspired by the Jamaican Sound system culture.
Our system is called “Mahikai” meaning “greetings and welcome” in the Ambai language on Northern coast of the Papuan island, and we would love to invite you to our listening party at Mamma Chen’s on Friday February 9th, from 6pm to midnight.

It is a FREE PARTY, all reggae vibes and beyond with dub + poetry, rocksteady, ska, dancehall, dnb, jungle and electronics.
Our starting lineup:

Jamali Bowden
Durian Berduri
Pondan Idaman
General Vibes

Looking forward to seeing you boogie with us!


Mamma Chen’s acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and the Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation, the true owners of the land that we live and operate on. We would like to pay our respects to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
