The Residents: Local Global Music Project

All music is global and all music is local

The Residents is a musical reflection on Moreland and greater Melbourne – where over 250 languages are spoken, food from all corners of the globe is enjoyed and a multitude of musical languages, pure and mixed are cooked up for all to experience.

The Residents boasts some of the nest working musicians from the many Melbourne ‘ethnic’ music scenes making local music with global resonance. With a mix of first and second generation Australians, The Residents combines musical traditions from Cuba, Botswana, Italy, Czech Republic, Iran and Sri Lanka under the mantle – all music is global and all music is local.
