Hi Pit
I am doing a news story for a university assignment (studying journalism) about multicultralism in Melbourne's live music scene.
I just wanted to research the topic and see what you guys thought of multicultralism in your local live music scene?
My local music scene is dominated by bands playing rock/metal with mostly white/european fans.
Obviously if you live in Melbourne and would like to give me a quote that I could use in my story that would be great.
Thanks, Ethan.
I love white guitars!
This is quite the coincidence, because I just saw a live band yesterday that mixed taditional arabian music with balkan and modern ska styles of music.

We are currently having a big city festival here in Darmstadt and they played on the stage that's like 100 meters away from my apartment, so I had a great view of them. They were really awesome.

Here's their website, if it interests you: http://www.jawala.de/index.php?lang=en&flash=1

They were truly kickass.
I live in Adelaide and while there are more Australian bands breaking into the mainstream internationally (Tame Impala, The John Butler Trio) nowadays it seems that every concert I go to is full of goddamned low-life aboriginals.
Sounds good CoreysMonster, thanks for your input.

RU experienced?: That is quite an interesting view. I really see Aboriginals at concerts. Would you care to explain what kind of shows this has happened at?

At the recent national folk festival in Canberra, there was everything from Japanese-country-bluegrass, to Swedish and Finnish trad, avant guarde Jazz trios, Georgian choirs, vocal/looping experimenters and singer songwriters right through to 'conservative' trad Irish and Scottish tunes players, and even they were happily in a session with a didg' player. Y'know, because a didgeridoo might as well be a traditional Irish instrument.

In a Sydney jazz club I was in just last weekend, at the table I was at there were Dutch, Japanese, African and I-can't-pick-your-accentians getting along fantastically.

At a music camp the week before, we had Spanish, Arabic and Gypsy music and Dutch, German, Danish, Maori, American and Isreali-Indonesian-Italian heritage or something like that, and then at another festival the previous weekend there were Hungarian-Romanian-Gypsy players, a Murri band from up Kimberly way, belly-dancers and... oh, I give up.

I've never been to Melbourne for music, but I do know there are strong Irish and Scottish scenes - no idea about the demographic though.

To the waters and the wild
With a fairy hand in hand;
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

Yeah I'm from Melbourne and my quote is there's too many Vietnamese boat people at metal shows.
