HEAPS DECENT TAKES OVER HARRY’S LEGENDARY LOUNGE BAR
It’s a sensational selection of thriving young First Nations artists who’ll be getting on the mic and performing live at Harry, this NAIDOC week, bringing a HEAPS DECENT party vibe to the velvety environs of the lounge bar. Heaps Decent was founded in 2007, when Sydney DJs Nina Agzarian and Andrew Levins teamed up with prolific American producer, Diplo (Wesley Pentz). Together, they ran music workshops in the Riverina Juvenile Justice Centre in Wagga Wagga, NSW. A few months later, they took female pop icon M.I.A. to Juniperina all-girls Juvenile Justice centre in Sydney’s western suburbs. Here, Nina and Levins experienced first-hand how music and storytelling can change lives.Twelve years on, Heaps Decent has helped create well over 1000 songs with talented young Australians from radically diverse backgrounds: from First Nations girls on the Marrickville streets to young men who have dropped out of school; from 4-year-olds in Wilcannia to 22-year-olds in Redfern; from Bunbury in WA to Santa Teresa in the NT. Young people have been empowered to tell their stories in music through workshops, performances and mentoring schemes.
Willy J, The Chaza, OLZ and Princess Atlantis bring the vibes from hip-hop to hyper pop and everything in-between – with Heaps Decent facilitator Adam Bozetto aka For Life on the platters that matter alongside. Tonnes of fresh, live, original, organic & fantastic music grown here in the lush soils of NSW – direct to your aural plate.
HEAPS DECENT is an Australian organisation empowering diverse young people to express their creativity through music and multi-media. They support engagement for change, positive futures and the development of high-quality content with a unique identity. Eat up, party up, dig in its heaps harry!
