Five years in the making, Ngaiire is taking her third album ‘3’ around Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand for the very first time to celebrate its 1 year anniversary.
Coming hot off the back of 4 ARIA Award nominations, 2 FBi Radio SMAC Awards and an AIR Award nom for ‘Best Independent Pop Album’ Ngaiire will be dropping a bonus track – FUCHSIA – to celebrate. A continuation of the art project/experiment that NGAIIRE has described as ‘a very expensive therapy session’. FUCHSIA, with it’s subversive beats & Ngaiire’s signature vocals, is an exploration of all that is queer & taboo in post-colonial Papua New Guinea.
On this tour you can expect the signature vocals, beats and costumes that Ngaiire is celebrated around the globe for. Not to mention taken her to the stages of Glastonbury and Splendour In The Grass, and tours alongside Sufjan Stevens, Alicia Keys and Leon Bridges.
‘3’, a deeply personal album, brings Ngaiire’s heritage as a Papuan New Guinean woman to the foreground, exploring the link between heritage and westernised existence.
