Ngaiire & The Sydney Symphony Orchestra Present Fireflies with GODTET
Four-time ARIA award-nominated future-soul artist Ngaiire will return to the Sydney Opera House this May for a one-off, genre-bending concert with the Sydney Symphony and icons of the Sydney underground music scene, GODTET.

Ngaiire & The Sydney Symphony Orchestra present Fireflies with GODTET (4 May) will see the First Nations Papua New Guinean songwriter showcase her innovative fusion of electronic future-soul, gospel, and alt-pop, following her sold-out performance at the Sydney Opera House’s 50-anniversary celebrations in 2022.

Ngaiire’s powerhouse vocals have been described by Rolling Stone as “a near perfect slice of hushed future soul” garnering her four ARIA Award nominations, four National Live Music Awards, three FBi Radio SMAC Awards and the inaugural Australian Women in Music Award for Artistic Excellence. Not one to be defined by genre, Ngaiire’s career has her seen her tour alongside and collaborate with artists ranging from Alicia Keys, Flume, Hiatus Kaiyote, Sufjan Stevens, Australian Art Orchestra and Leon Bridges. In 2021, she became the first Papua New Guinean to appear on ABC’s Play School and the first musician to play in front of Canberra’s National Press Club.

Returning to Sydney following a whirlwind year of critically acclaimed performances across Australia and the United States, Ngaiire will perform the songs that made her famous to celebrate the release of a new live album from her 2022 Sydney Opera House Forecourt concert.

Joining her onstage are local superstars GODTET, performing their GODTET + STRINGS project with members of the Sydney Symphony. Praised by The Guardian for their “progressive tones and wide-spanning style…both classic and completely new”, GODTET’s blend of mediative, improvisational jazz has captured the imagination of audiences across the nation. In 2022, the 5-piece collaborative project and brainchild of Australian instrumentalist Godriguez, performed at Vivid to rave reviews, with Vivid’s music curator, Joe Muller, calling it “far and away the most special show across the entire festival”.

Together Ngaiire and GODTET will transcend musical borders in an unforgettable evening of innovation, imagination, and extraordinary artistry, not to be missed.
