Whether you’re trying to make your weekend stretch, or just winding it down, SUNDAY SOUNDS is a blissful way to see it out. So grab some friends, grab a drink, and get down for an intimate night of live music and unrehearsed laughs. It’s the perfect way to reset before the week begins.
Lose yourself in a swirl of sound as one woman creates a sweet tangle of electric bass, double bass and looped tones. All fused with her bright glowing spirt, Allara’s emotive compositions resonate with dark frequencies and soaring melodies. Orchestral bowed harmonies swell over electronic beats and traditional clap stick rhythms creating a truly unique sound.
Reflecting on a journey through her own deepest passions, this collision of hip hop, neo soul, blues, and reggae is an empowering thematic exploration of culture, spirituality, and the environment.
‘Hitting every note with confidence and conviction she leaves her audience feeling warm and fuzzy while taking their breath away.’ – Songlines
An Intimate Evening with Constantina Bush
Move over RuPaul, Constantina has come to town and has a story to tell. Leaving the long hard dusty days of a Northern Territory cattle station behind, she’s found a home in the shining lights of the big city. But who knew love and fame could be so elusive?
Join Kamahi Djordan King’s alter ego, for a night of songs, stories, and a dark dash of very black humour. If Bush’s past shows are anything to go by, one thing’s for sure: everything’s up for grabs and nothing’s off limits.
‘Constantina is crass and crude, but is also full of sass and attitude’ – ABC Radio Darwin
In the Ngarrindjeri language, Kuko means two, and for Sonya Rankine and Shane Labady there is something very special about that number. Both industry veterans, together the two have hit one very exciting musical wavelength.

Recently returning to music through this collaboration, she is known for songs that are self-reflective and soulful. Shane Labady brings over twenty years as a singer and guitarist. Forging a new sound together, there show promises a catalogue of originals littered with their favourite covers.
Marlon Motlop might be better known to many for his time on the football field, but in recent years, Marlon is emerging as a pretty dynamic centre half songwriter. Spinning stories better than a well timed drop punt, his reflective brand of songwriting can’t help but move even the toughest listener.
Born and bred in Darwin, Marlon is of Aboriginal Larrakia and Thursday Island Torres Strait Islander heritage. His love for family and country is inseparable from his two passions: sharing stories through song, and working with the Aboriginal AFL Academy.
