In an extraordinary concert coming to Boomerang from its success at London’s Olympic Festival during the Games and their two sell out performances at The Sydney Opera House Concert Hall in March, we are thrilled to present:


The London Olympic Festival was a truly Olympian feat featuring 25,000 artists from all 204 competing Olympic nations. Representing Oceania was Wantok: SING SING in an unforgettable concert which drew rave reviews from the media and standing ovations from the audience.

Outside of its two sell out performances at the Sydney Opera House last March Australia has waited expectantly to experience the music of the indigenous people of Oceania in their joyous fusion of music and dance.

Boomerang is proud to present all 17 members featuring their sublime world grooves, powerful mix of drumming, amazing vocals, Samoan street hip hop, reggae, dance and much more.
