About the event
Born in Zimbabwe and raised in Perth, Anesu is a transgender hip-hop artist who draws influences from both worlds. Performing with a live band, Anesu uses staunch storytelling to explore themes of queer and cultural identity. Their music can be described as both activism and impeccably crafted R&B. Through biting melodies and catchy hooks, Anesu fearlessly addresses issues of racism and grief while celebrating the boundless joy of the Black experience.
Their music stands as a testament to the power of self-expression and the urgency to bring awareness to underrepresented narratives. Beyond the studio, Anesu has emerged as a pivotal figure in their community, organizing events that center on black, brown, and queer joy. Their commitment to amplifying silenced voices and reminding us that existence itself is an act of activism, is awe-inspiring.
Since their first live performance in 2019, Anesu has quickly carved out a space for themselves, gracing stages at Groovin the Moo, Sydney WorldPride, Bigsound, Way Way West, Gaytimes Festival, and Perth Festival. Supporting icons such as Mykki Blanco, JessB, and Charli 2na, and appearing as a Triple J unearthed Feature Artist, Anesu continues to dominate as one of Australia's top artists to watch—an emerging icon of our time.
