Move. And be moved. Find your flow and go about each day to the rhythm of your own making. That’s the theme of 2019 for Byron Bay singer, ukulele strummer and drummer Bobby Alu.
Amidst smooth harmonies, rhythms inspired by a family lineage of Polynesian performance, and unassuming grooves, Bobby Alu tunes have a way of taking up residence in the subconscious. Though it’s not all palm trees and daydreams – there’s a robust energy in Alu’s mastery of Samoan log drums, and a vitality to his songwriting that nods to world, roots and pop intelligence.
