NAIDOC Week – Nancy Bates & LENI

Fri 12 Jul @ 7:00 pm

Join us at Club5082 for a special NAIDOC Week show.

Nancy Bates is a First Nations composer, writer, educator, and proudly Barkindji. With cultural ties to communities running the length of the Baarka, she is river woman living a multifaceted life, intertwining music, education, and advocacy to weaponise and resist colonisation.

From 2013 to 2017, Nancy completed a musical apprenticeship under the mentorship of renowned Song Man, Uncle Archie Roach. This experience has spurred her on to become a powerful presence both on stage, and off.

Recognising her exceptional contributions to the music industry, Nancy Bates has been honoured as an Ambassador for the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA).

Through the ‘Songs Inside’ film project, Nancy teaches ukulele and songwriting to women in prison, giving them voice, and freedom of expression within a colonial punishment system.

As an educator, Nancy has extensive experience in facilitating Cultural Safety/ Indigenous Health topics at a primary, secondary, and tertiary level.
Nancy advocates for access and inclusion rights of First Nations People with disability, and in 2023, supported mob to tell their stories of Abuse Neglect and Exploitation to the Disability Royal Commission.

Nancy Bates was a 2022 Finalist for Australian Women in Music’s Humanitarian Award, and in 2023 gifted a Star on Adelaide Festival Centre’s Walk of Fame, Critic’s Choice Award.

Rising indie artist LENI is a powerful and inspiring positive force forged by the rich talent and creativity of this Indigenous Mapuché Chilean / Australian singer, award-winning songwriter, guitarist, and producer who delivers an infectious and dynamic mix of Alt R&B Folk Hip Hop Soul. With a mesmerising, engaging and soulful stage presence incorporating tasteful live loops to electrifying high energy band antics, LENI brings powerful energy to his live shows. Landing major support slots for Grammy Award winning artists Bombino, Santana, and The Doobie Brothers; opening as main support for MO’JU and sharing the stage with Dan Sultan, Maxi Priest, and Justin Timberlake’s World Tour support act Common Kings, LENI is ready to take on the world with exciting upcoming releases over the year.

Forced to flee his home country at the age of 2 with his family as refugees, LENI believes it is his duty to heal the world through music and speak out in respect for the earth, indigenous cultures, animals, and all living things.
