Although street performers in Melbourne are common, it’s unusual to see bands. Here are two members of Bonjahbango in Bourke Street.

I don’t usually take this kind of photo, ie people just doing something, and I found it quite challenging.

I love them too, it´s such a stoned rolling sound!!! It was so great last june in Melbourne to listen to them on Bourke Street….
Here at home in Hamburg/Germany we also have bands that pIay live in the streets, but here heard a band with that sound !
Music is my best friend !

On a flying visit to Australia (5 days) I caught these guys in a bar in St.Kilda, Melbourne a couple of weeks ago. A friend had seen them busking in the street and suggested we go along and see them. An excellent band, an excellent night!!

I saw this band play in St Kilda. What an amzing sound. I can see these guys going very far in the music industry. Imagine their sound blasting through the stereo driving to the beach…

They most certainly are from NZ, proud and true. Not only amazing band but fantastic people.
