Benji and The SS


Event Details

The coconut wireless has relayed the message that Benji Fowler will soon be returning to his mother country Australia to kickstart a new musical project, Benji and the Saltwater Sound System. After a year of village living in remote Solomon Islands the musical excursionist will be importing some new material for Australian audiences. Fingers crossed that the islander grit found in Benji’s rice bag swag of the fresh musical produce clears customs.

Benji and the Saltwater Sound System draws upon Benji’s recent immersion in islander flavours fused with the reggae and African roots of its members past musical projects to create hypnotic soundscapes underpinned by painfully catchy melodies. Add to this the beautifully poignant lyrics that Benji has become known for and you can’t help but expect something special from this new line-up.

The artists in Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have had the honor of playing at a number of acclaimed festivals, venues and events. These include Woodford, the National Folk Festival, Corinbank, the Dreaming Festival, Summer Rhythm, Sydney Blues Festival, and Illawarra Folk Festival just to name a few.
