UMI Soundz Indigenous concert

Head along to Cairns' best live music venue, Tank 5 at the Tanks Art Centre to enjoy original music by Indigenous musicians, the SK Boiiz and Warrigan Band. 

Warrigan Band will kick-off the evening with original songs they have written since forming in 2005. For over 10 years, this group of six family members from Hopevale, Cape York, have written their own lyrics and composed their own sound. The band is making the 5 hour journey form Hopevale just to perform at UMI Soundz, so you can expect they will make it worth their and your while.  

Taking over from Warrigan Band is another family group who are not short on talent, the SK Boiiz. The SK Boiiz are made up of five brothers from Seisia in the Northern Peninsula Area. Founded by music artists and producer, SK_KiidD who wanted to create pathways for other musicians and mentor his siblings about the music industry and how to make a living out of being a musician. This positive outlook and aspiring spirit is evident in how the brothers perform and shines through their lyrics.  

UMI Soundz concert featuring Warrigan Band and the SK Boiiz will take place on Saturday 17 October, 2015 in Tank 5, Tanks Arts Centre. Tickets can be purchased now from for $12/$10.
