Iconic South African queer artist Fortune Shumba is descending upon Australian Shores this September for a huge string of Australian performances.
Since posting his debut EP Dawn on Soundcloud two years ago, the artist has remained unapologetically vocal about his support for members of the LGBTQ community and remains an activist against any form of abuse towards women, children and queer people.
He channels these themes through his music and live sets, which are often filled with colour and extremely creative, out of the ordinary elements.
Fortune Shumba is quickly becoming an artist to watch on the global music scene. Don’t miss your chance to catch him live at any of the following dates:
September 8th – The Tivoli, Brisbane – Heaps Gay Trash Palace
September 15th – 24 Moons Bar, Northcote – Heaps Gay Trash Tour
