The Boite presents Iaki Vallejo

As part of our latest live music program, “Live Music Near Me”, The Boite will be kicking off the concert series with a very special launch party on March 30th, with Iaki Vallejo and her band at the Open Studio. “Live Music Near Me” will span across eight venues over the next few months and feature over 20 bands and individual artists.

Iaki Vallejo is a Colombian African/Indigenous descendant singer/songwriter, performer, choir leader, visual artist, music producer, video producer and director based in Melbourne. With a strong reputation in the Latin American community, Iaki’s music is, ‘a blend of many, many different rhythms’ – mixes many styles, fusing Afro-Colombian rhythms with jazz, french music, soul, salsa, afro-beat, funk, neo-soul and reggae.

Her multifaceted creative expression crosses disciplines and genres and manifests in many ways but is always informed by her ancestry. Her work comes straight from the heart as she draws on her African and indigenous Colombian heritage and spirit in her music and performances.

This performance will definitely keep you dancing throughout the night!!

This Boite event is funded by Live Music Australia – an Australian Government initiative.
