Six women. Six distinct life stories tied to the complex history of Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea’s indigenous people. Six strikingly fresh voices that move that history down a compelling new path. Fill your heart on Valentine’s Day with the oh-so-soulful Barefoot Divas, a group of innovative, acclaimed singer/songwriters of indigenous heritage, whose wildly popular show Walk a Mile in My Shoes visits Town Hall as part of its first North American tour. A sellout over two seasons at the Sydney and New Zealand International arts festivals, the “heart-warming, spine-tingling” show offers a cultural experience and an intimate look at the lives of the talented, funny, uplifting Divas. Backed by a powerhouse six-piece band, the bold and brash Divas perform original, authentic, deeply felt compositions that swing between acoustic roots, jazz, R&B, and Latin-infused soul—in Aboriginal languages and a fusion of English and Maori (Te Reo), and with magical six-part harmonies.
Presented by: Town Hall as part of its Global Rhythms series, curated by Brian Faker. Series supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and Wyncote Foundation NW. Series media sponsorship provided by KBCS 91.3 FM.
