This Sonic Sunday presents TIO (Vanuatu)  

Enjoy free live music played by a variety of talented performers with Sonic Sundays. Presented each Sunday by Naughty Noodle Fun Haus at the FunHaus Factory in Gosford.

Tio grew up steeped in the rich tapestry of Vanuatu’s cultural heritage. His musical journey began with the rhythmic heartbeat of traditional tam tam slit-drums echoing through his childhood. From the earliest days, he was captivated by the melodic cadence of his Daakaka language interwoven with the tales of his ancestors.

Tio’s path led him to Port Vila, the vibrant hub of Vanuatu’s music scene. At this time he found himself immersed in the soul-stirring sounds of roots-reggae. A genre that would shape his artistic identity. Amidst the pulsating rhythms and heartfelt lyrics, Tio’s musical prowess blossomed, his talents as a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist undoubtedly  shining through.

While his storytelling comes through his spellbinding vocals, he is also a talented multi-instrumentalist. Switching between violin, ukulele, guitar, tam tam and bush bass. Tio is driven by a passion to mix traditional and contemporary beats and styles, while using modern instrumentation and production to paint a story of his experiences living between Vanuatu and Australia.  

In 2020, Tio unveiled his debut album, “Sorousian,” – A masterpiece that garnered widespread acclaim. Earning a coveted 5-star review in Songlines magazine and capturing the hearts of listeners around the globe.

Tio is in Australia playing at Cygnet Folk Festival and WOMAD, but on Sun 25th Feb will be performing for us here at The Fun Haus as part of Sonic Sundays.
