Though the performance was only supported by Milan Ring’s incredible electric guitar work, NGAIIRE still easily filled the studio with the incredible power of her voice and story-telling ability.
NGAIIRE was the most recent guest at the Live at Enmore studios. More than ably supported by Milan Ring, she delivered an incredible performance of Boom.
The performance had intimate moments which built up to the explosive, with NGAIIRE displaying a massive range of emotional colours through her voice and lyrics.
Before she stepped up to the microphone, NGAIIRE reflected on the song’s meaning:
“Boom is about experiences growing up in PNG and how sex is viewed in a society that’s been heavily influenced by colonialism.”
