An evening watching Ngaiire live is always a spiritual experience. Her art-pop performance structure, that vocal force, tight beats, and costumes to rival creative norms, all make Ngaiire a force of nature.

The multi-award winner’s Australian tour has been postponed amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but not only has she planned a special live-streamed event, she’s allowing fans to pay whatever they like for it.

The one-off event, Ngaiire: Take Over, will be beamed in from Riverside Theatres in Parramatta this Sunday June 21st. The team at Riverside Theatres have created Riverside Theatres Digital for the show, a brand-new unique viewing experience with live multi-camera screenings, streaming once only.

Joining Ngaiire will be Western Sydney born and raised songwriter and producer Clarissa Mei, with Mei and Ngaiire opting for the generous option of  ‘Pay What You Can’ ticketing. This means (if you don’t have the means) you are able to watch this concert for free. Bur for those of who can give, your donation will go straight to the performers, theatre workers and Riverside Theatre.

Take it from someone who has had the privilege of catching Ngaiire live in the past, she has a way of confronting and soothing the senses all at once. It’s any wonder she has such a long list of accolades; including four National Live Music Awards, an FBi Radio SMAC Award for Best Live Act and the inaugural Australian Women in Music Award for Artistic Excellence.

To celebrate, Tone Deaf asked Ngaiire for a list of tracks she has on repeat at the moment. With tracks from Erykah Badu, Darondo and Eunice Collins’ incredible but sadly only recording ‘At The Hotel’, this is a telling insight into the transcendent mind of Ngaiire.
