Rebel Musik ready to rock Melbourne this weekend

Working on final rehearsals now, the group of  at least 10 artists from PNG and West Papua aim to put up a spectacular performance for the audience.

 “Everything is sounding awesome with the use of traditional and modern instrumentation. It's a real fusion of the old and new. Mystic chants, native dialect rapping including Dubstep intertwined with lights and visuals as well. It's sounding and looking really good. Can't wait for this Friday. It's going to be a real audio and visual extravaganza,” said rapper SpriggaMek, who is part of the collaboration.
