Australian Themed Entertainment
Australia has a long history of entertainment beginning with indigenous dance and songs of aboriginal groups during which time it is thought that the didgeridoo – Australia’s best-known wind instrument – was developed. With the first wave of European settlers and exported convicts came Australian ‘bush music’ or folklore music that spoke of hardship and the experiences of Australian life in the outback.
Today these traditions are still embedded within Australian entertainment but have been given a contemporary twist that allows it to remain current and exciting to audiences around the world. If you’re planning an Australian themed event, at Scarlett Entertainment we have a wealth of both traditional and contemporary Australian themed acts that will really bring an authentic Aussie touch to your event, be it a sophisticated corporate dinner or private party.
