Ajak Kwai sings music that is inspiring and soulful, infused with funky afro-beats representing the depth and richness of her South Sudanese roots. Her performances are filled with vibrant sounds and her distinctive voice has mesmerised audiences around the world. Born and raised in a Dinka village, Kwai grew up in a musical family and migrated to Australia in 1999. Singing in Arabic, Sudanese and English, Kwai conjures a vivid picture of her heritage and the separation from her home and family. Music is Kwai's vehicle for sharing her extraordinary life as a refugee, yet her moving tales of exile are filled with optimism and belief in the goodness of human nature.
