Indian Ocean Territories Touring

Regional Arts WA delivers tours to Christmas and Cocos (Keeling) Islands on behalf of the Australian Government, through the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications. 

Indian Ocean Territories (IOT) touring is a presenter-driven touring model.  The program ensures that everyone has access to quality performing arts, regardless of their locality.

Grace Barbé Afro Kreol brings tropical sounds to the Indian Ocean Territories 

Audiences across the Indian Ocean Territories are set to be wowed this June by the multi-West Australian Music (WAM) award winning Grace Barbé Afro Kreol. 

Hailing from the sunburnt Indian Ocean Island of the Seychelles, Grace’s music fuses tropical rhythms and dances with psychedelic rock, afrobeat, reggae and pop. Now based in Western Australia, Grace has been enticing audiences to get up and shake their coconuts since the release of her debut album Kreol Daughter in 2009, with appearances all over India, East Africa and the Indian Ocean as well as at Australia’s leading music festivals, including WOMADelaide, Byron Bay Bluesfest and Woodford.  

The Grace Barbé Afro Kreol tour marks the band’s second visit to the Indian Ocean Territories, after a successful run of performances and workshops through Regional Arts WA’s Indian Ocean Territories touring program in 2015.
