Event Tjaka: A Sonic Journey

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.

Guest Info
  • Tjaka are a trio from Meanjin/Brisbane comprised of brothers Geoff and Jake Fabila and Felix Fogarty. ‘Tjaka’ is derived from ‘Tjakamarra’, the skin name given to the Fabila brothers, who are descendants of the Jabirr Jabirr tribe in the Western Australian Kimberley. Fusing electronic and hip-hop with ancestral influences, their music is both contemporary and connected to their Aboriginal heritage. Tjaka have cemented their reputation as an unmissable live act, performing at festivals nationally and internationally, including Splendour in the Grass and Dark Mofo, and Pasiwali Festival, Taiwan.

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
