BLACK JESUS eXPERIENCE and AURUS present a double bill, individual sets and in collaboration. Direct from major international festivals, a one off special performance live at The Night Cat Fitzroy 16 March.
AURUS is an astounding virtuoso singer and composer. Originally from Reunion Island, now resident in Paris, AURUS performs solo and with his eponymous band around the world. With his shamanic appearance and emblematic headdress, AURUS has absorbed the sounds of the world, from Africa to New York, through British pop, while always keeping his roots in Maloya. Singing in English, French, and Creole AURUS enchants audiences with a fusion of cultures and emotions, leaving them touched by grace.

PBS’s own Stani Goma introduced Reunion Island’s AURUS and Melbourne’s own BLACK JESUS eXPERIENCE, and within an hour they were jamming onstage at local venue The Horn. The collaboration was so powerful that AURUS immediately (that night!) joined BLACK JESUS eXPERIENCE on tour, going on to perform together at major international festivals. They have also recorded tracks to appear on BLACK JESUS eXPERIENCE’s upcoming album, this concert will be a unique opportunity to hear these collaborative works.
At The Night Cat on 16 March you can hear AURUS with his own group, and BLACK JESUS eXPERIENCE; individually, and in collaboration. PLUS the long awaited and miraculous return of BJX’s founder, songstress Enushu Taye. This evening will be Enushu’s first Melbourne concert appearance since her injury and a celebration of her resilience, determination, and love.
