Live at The Junk Bar, Ashgrove, 9 July 2022
Waveney Yasso is a Meanjin-based singer, songwriter and instrumentalist of proud South Sea Island and Aboriginal descent. After graduating from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in 2014, Waveney brought her career home to Meanjin and formed one half of acoustic duo Black Salt with Georgia Corowa. Waveney has performed with Yothu Yindi and the Treaty Project, co-wrote and performed her own children’s musical theatre show, and she is co-founder and previously guitar accompanist of Meanjin’s Pub Choir.
In this performance recorded at the Junk Bar in Ashgrove, Waveney speaks and sings her truth to life with guitar and loop pedal accompaniment, weaving the themes of her passionate R’n’B/Blues/Roots influenced songs with stories from her life and reflections on her culture, family and the environment.
