Bobby Alu (solo) with featured guest Foloi Iulia

Bobby Alu delivers enchanting performances blending Polynesian rhythms, engaging storytelling, and effortless harmonies. Armed with his trademark baritone ukulele and log drums, Bobby weaves influences from his Samoan heritage into his music as he expertly navigates the groove spectrum from folk through roots, reggae to tropical pop.

With a stellar reputation as a world-class performer, touring as Xavier Rudd's percussionist for five years and supporting the likes of John Butler Trio and Busby Marou, Bobby captivates audiences around the globe. His music remains marked by capturing the purest essence of enjoyment. In this special concert, Bobby will be joined by his mother, Foloi Iulia, to present a mesmerising fusion of graceful Samoan dance and traditional songs.
