Welcome to the homepage of Foco Nuevo, the regular performance space for Jumping Fences, where we hold concerts on the First Friday of every month.

Our home base is Kurilpa Hall at 174 Boundary Street West End.

FOCO NUEVO Turns 10!

2 March, 2018 8.00 p.m.

Join us for this very special Foco Nuevo! For this 10th anniversary we're celebrating our links to Latin American culture, inviting guests who have been great musical colleagues over the years that Foco Nuevo has been running. Albert Revelo, Ovidio Orellana, Nelson Mansilla, and Oscar Orellana - as well as Vanessa Losada, a Venezuelan folk dancer - will join with Jumping Fences in what will be a memorable night.

Don't miss this one!

Albert Revelo: Uruguayan-born Australian presenting a synthesis of politically motivated fusion of popular song that evolved from exiled artists of the military regime of Uruguay. Albert plays guitar to his own rhythmic patterns fusing Afro-Uruguayan beats of candombe to a classical heartbeat.

Nelson Mansilla, along with Ovidio and Oscar Orellana return to Foco Nuevo bringing their wonderful interpretations of Latin American songs. [website].

Vanessa Losada will join with Nelson, Oscar and Ovidio, making a special appearance with her vibrant Venezuelan folk dances.

You're sure to be enthralled!

Jumping Fences: the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk join forces with Ross Gwyther, James Harper and Robbie Stewart to create an innovative style inspired by a long association with Latin American singer-songwriters. Dynamic arrangements move easily between tenderness and energy with their lyrics weaving the rich poetry of everyday life into broad social themes [website].

Entry is $10 and $7 (concession)

Cakes, savouries, tea and coffee available.
