Tjaka: A Sonic Journey


14 December 2023

Hear Tjaka present an improvised sound performance, featuring a new instrumental line-up including Didjeribone (slide didgeridoo), hemp didgeridoo, guitar, and keys.

Fusing electronic and hip-hop with ancestral influences, their music is both contemporary and deeply connected to their Aboriginal heritage and traditions.



We are committed to making the IMA accessible to people of all abilities, their families, and carers, as well as visitors of different ages and different backgrounds.

The gallery entrance is on the ground floor of the Judith Wright Arts Centre, on Berwick Street. There is wheelchair access and an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities also located on the ground floor, and we welcome guide and support dogs.

If you plan to attend this event and have specific support needs we can accommodate, please contact engagement@ima.org.au, call (07) 3252 5750, or ask our friendly staff on-site. Read our access information for visitors here.
