Kota Banks

With her infectious melodies, clever tongue-in-cheek lyrics, fresh beats and a big dose of confidence, it’s not hard to see why Kota Banks-who cut her teeth singing opera in Florence, Italy as a kid-has captured attention.
From her debut PRIZE mixtape, 2020’s Sweet & The Spice EP, through to her collaborative True North project with Sydney’s prolific Ninajirachi; talent and determination have paid off for the performer. Banks has amassed over 40 million streams on Spotify alone, receiving praise from outlets like Billboard, The Atlantic, NME, Clash, Junkee, Acclaim and Paper Magazine, and most recently selling out her hometown shows in the midst of NSW’s lockdowns. Alongside her own growing catalogue and Cashmere Cat collaborations, Banks also wrote and performed with the late groundbreaking producer SOPHIE on their track “Not Okay” from the2019 Grammy Nominated album ‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’. Empowerment and experimentation are the pillars of Kota’s work, and are set to propel her in to the pop stratosphere not only nation-wide, but internationally.

In the special co-curated program with Illuminate Adelaide, light and sound will converge over four eclectic weekends to present some of the most cutting-edge new music locally and from around the globe.
Fostering collaborations with visual storytellers and a live lineup of musicians and DJs from different disciplines, each weekend will be a testament to talent, artistry and above all, good times.
