Arts on Tour NZ: Genre Fluid

March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Genre Fluid tours New Zealand in March 2024 with Arts On Tour NZ and is a unique fusion of contemporary music and theatre. With their unique synergy on stage, the Nelson-based duo  perform a combination of high-energy rock funk anthems and improvised acts; morphing style, sound and character into a captivating experience for all ages to groove and be moved.

The show will be split into two halves with the first being delivered predominately as improvised songs and sonic landscapes using guitar, drum machine, and vocals. The second set will be a selection songs from their debut album, ‘The Groova Meista’, independently released in April 2023.

The duo consists of Wellington-born vocalist and performance artist, Silk Satin Suede, and Nelsonborn multi-instrumentalist and looping artist, Bosho. Their journey began in 2020 where they quickly found a synergy within improvised music in Bo’s jam room in Nelson, New Zealand. Both heavily inspired by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Talking Heads and Fat Freddy’s Drop, all Genre Fluid songs are born with the channelling of one feeling and the passion of another; contributing to a multigenre’d catalog of music.

Genre Fluid’s engaging theatrical street performances found them early local success, becoming well recognised for their creative musicality in live looping, improvisation, theatrics, humour, and their ability to adapt to all environments, making them an act well-loved by all ages. This has led them to playing on festival stages and opening for legendary Kiwi artists such as Julia Deans, Mako Road, The Narcs and Albi & The Wolves.
