In Conversation with Zola Jesus

Co-presented with Melbourne Recital Centre

Equally commanding and fragile, American visionary Zola Jesus transcends genre with her shape-shifting mix of cinematic synth pop and dark anthemic balladry. Her mix of the traditional and futuristic has seen her heralded among America’s most compelling young musicians and, at just 27, performed with Fever Ray, The XX and collaborated with David Lynch and M83.

For her fifth studio album, Taiga, Zola relocated to Vashon Island in the Puget Sound in an effort to immerse herself in the natural world. Taiga is an undeniable transition for Zola Jesus described by the artist herself; ‘The music on the record is massive, with big brass and beats, crystal clear vocals.’

Join a rare, up-close and personal discussion with Zola Jesus, sharing insights into her creative processes, musings on her career and a few songs along the way. This is a unique opportunity for an intimate audience to participate in the creative conversation and learn from this remarkable musician.
