Two nights at The Penny Black, two enigmatic and potent women of the Melbourne music scene: emerging talents Elle Shimada and Rara Zulu host this short residency exploring soulful and experimental sounds with their up and coming projects.

Elle Shimada, a rising star of the electronic and improv scene presents her new band (consist the members from Close Counters, Zeigheist Freedom Energy Exchange, Sextet Manifesto), exploring futuristic beats with live instrumentation and cutting edge production. Leading the band with her violin, synths and programming, Shimada's music traverses the space between Soulful House, Drum and Bass, Hip Hop, Jazz and Classical. 

Opening this residency will be vocalist Rara Zulu. She brings her sexy and soulful vocals to the stage with attitude to spare. Unafraid to show some sass and speak her mind, Rara Zulu's energy is unstoppable and infectious, and her band, compromised of members of some of Melbourne's hottest new projects (WVRBVBY, Messy Mammals) is right with her every step of the way. 

Two fierce women fronting two powerful new projects over two nights, this is a residency not to miss.
