Sydney Opera House
Score a double pass to see Internationally revered artist, producer, multi-instrumentalist and composer, Yussef Dayes at Sydney Opera House
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard from the electronic dance-art-pop producer.

She spoke with Bri Kennedy on Arvos all about her album and her new live show.

Earlier this month electro wizard and multi-instrumentalist Skeleten brought a live band and visions of a sonic utopia to the Sydney Opera House’s studio room. We sent along Maria Dimitrakas to get amongst the Vivid Live action.
“I was curious how this tender kind of introspective, hyperpersonal, and emotional music would translate into a public listening setting at the Opera House. After all, what does it feel like to play and/or hear ‘lockdown’ music in a room full of people?”
