Salaam Porobibi!

Sunday, 5 February 2023 - 4:00pm to Sunday, 12 February 2023 - 6:00pm

On today’s show we explore soundsystem culture with Porobibi and discuss his new creative project “Mahikai Sound system”, for which he’s organised a fundraiser. Mahika Soundsystem is based on Jamaican sound system culture.

“I want to build this rig as I love to support gathering space for the marginals, and bring my Pasifika influence to the scene. If you want to support me to build the rig, you can find me on, by typing “help Poro build Mahikai sound system”.

Porobibi is a Papuan Melanesian artist, fundraiser and social architect, currently based in Footscray, Naarm. He uses storytelling through music, spoken word, and community organising to highlight movements of resistance and continuity of culture.

He has background in advocacy work and is passionate about using creative projects to develop accessible opportunities, engage collaborative works, and share cross-cultural storytelling through people’s lived experience.
