Editorial – #ChooseToChallenge the patriarchy

It is easy to think we have almost achieved equality for men and women in a country like Australia – just as long as you don’t think too hard about it.

Sydney-based rootsy rockers Caravaña Sun are getting set for a massive east tour this January in celebration of their debut album, Rising Falling. From the gypsy culture of southern France to the mystery of Ord River in the Northern Territory, the earthy collective take adoring audiences on a soul-moving, body-invigorating journey through the world’s cultures. Caravaña Sun are a frenetic fusion of roots, surf, ambient and world musical styles. Building a reputation for first-class live shows laden with danceworthy boppy reggae grooves and down-to-earth soulful lyrics, the close-knit high-energy surfing troupe will charm you tomorrow night at the Beach Hotel.
