Kalyani and Sam were brought together by E Fishpool for the iconic local music x local woman closing set at Inner Varnika last year. This performance was the beginning of a trio that anything is possible through. In music and curation, their mixing of narrative, theatre, pop, experimental and field recordings creates cracks between city & country, human & animal, and flora & fauna. These are portals where australia is reflected back at itself for us to confront and become eternal with. They are realities that hum with Indigenous systems of belonging, while holding the violence of external structures integrating locally.


For the Biennale, Kalyani and Sam step out from the trio to make sense of who they are before stepping further in. Local Woman is moving to Batemans Bay.

Art After Dark: Music is presented by the Biennale of Sydney and Phoenix Central Park.
