After a year full of lockdowns, MTV Unplugged is returning to Melbourne with singer-songwriter Tash Sultana to appear before a small live audience on Tuesday, 4 May at Chapel Off Chapel.
The Melbourne based artist will become the sixth act to be featured, following from Gang of Youths, Amy Shark, DMA’S, The Rubens and Courtney Barnett.
Sultana said: “To be able to play an MTV Unplugged set is pretty special. It’s something that everyone knows about so I’m really looking forward to being a part of it. Also, to do it in my hometown is a massive bonus.”
MTV Unplugged Melbourne is sponsored by Visit Victoria.
Visit Victoria CEO Brendan McClements said: “Music and live gigs are part of Melbourne’s DNA, and we’re excited to welcome Tash and the team at MTV to showcase our city its iconic and intimate venues.”
The gender fluid multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, producer and engineer, has been dubbed one of the hardest working music exports in Australia.
From a viral bedroom recording of ‘Jungle’ and street-stopping busking performances in Melbourne, to sold out global tours, Tash’s industry integrity is going from strength to strength.
The recent release of their sophomore album, Terra Firma is coated in Tash’s trademark looped and layered jams with a fusion of soul, funk, R&B, folk, rock, hip-hop.
The album, recorded, engineered, performed, arranged, and produced by Tash debuted at #1 and comes four years after their ARIA-winning #2 debut album Flow State. The critically acclaimed release featured the 2x Platinum single Jungle and the Platinum-selling single Mystik.
