Zag’r has performed at Canberra’s annual National Multicultural Festival, Sydney’s annual Africulture’s Festival and, Sydney’s Reggae Market Day Carnival to name but a few. Not your typical performer, Zag’r blends a unique melting pot of Afro-beat, Afro-Pop, Reggae, Jamaican Dancehall and East-African folk music.
Jah Tung is a Sydney based MC recently booked as support for Bushman (JA), Sister Nancy (JA), Deadly Hunta (UK) and Macka B (JA) to name a few. After having built momentum both locally and globally with the recently released collaborative EP single with London reggae legend Gappy Ranks, on the Jamaican label 11-7 Records, Tung is currently working with New Zealand’s “Reality Chant” after their acclaimed performance together in Byron Bay in late 2017. A unique voice, uplifting and skilfully written lyrics as well as a charismatic presence make Jah Tung a star on the rise that adds his light to the universal pursuit of righteousness, justice and peace.
