Yes, she was in born in Papua New Guinea. But Ngaiire has spent most of her years abroad, where she built her music career.
And after more than a decade since her last performance, the New Ireland singer will once again take local stage.
Ngaiire makes an appearance tonight at the Cosmopolitan, performing songs from her second album Blastoma.
“A lot of them may be new to the people in PNG. I know there are some hardcore fans here who’ve been following but for the others, this will be more like an introduction for me to the PNG audience,” she said.
Ngaiire is recognised as one of Australia’s leading future soul artists and been described as “the beating heart of the contemporary live music scene in Australia".
She is the winner of three Australian National Live Music Awards including 'Best Live Voice'.
She just completed her Blastoma tour about two months ago.
And as The Cosmopolitan has put it, the “future-soul vocal powerhouse is ready to show PNG why she has become one of the music industry's most celebrated artists.”
