Deep listening and housing ideas under Mullum’s fig trees for Renew Fest

Around a hundred presenters, musicians, other artists and community activators plus a bumper crowd of punters all came together under the fig trees at the Mullumbimby Showground over the weekend for Renew Fest 2021.

Visions of a Nomad plays an eclectic mix of world jazz fusion and classically influenced music. The group’s highly original music is both evocative and energetic and heavily accompanied by the didgeridoo.

They like to make music with substance, a cohesion of art and music, accessible to the masses, covering all genres and drawing on all of the world’s musical influences. You can not really categorise this group, hence the name Visions of a Nomad; they have created a niche of their own and simply don’t like to be put in a box.

Internationally acclaimed, this group has received rave reviews on their tours around the globe. From theatres, concert halls, festivals and the club scene, they have a repertoire to suit every occasion. These Aussie nomads like to cross musical boundaries and they never fail to experiment; this is not your average band. The best place to get the Nomads this weekend is at the Sheoak Shack in Fingal on Sunday.
