Workers to Set the Tunes for Dili Streets
Australian workers have the chance to set the tones of the streets of Dili by donating CDs for the fledgling radio station 'Voz de Esperanza' - the Voice of Hope.
APHEDA - Union Aid Abroad is backing the radio station as part of its contribution to the reconstruction effort in East Timor.
The Radio Free East Timor campaign kicks off April 13 at the Harbourside Brasserie - with acts as diverse as Barbalu and Astro Tabasco
Punters will be asked to bring their CDs to the gig, which will then be sent to Dili to add to the fledgling station's playlist.
APHEDA Dili project officer Ramona Mitussis says the Timorese love all sorts of music, but that Reggae and House are the favourites. Then again - a bit of Aussie indie music would go down well too.
Tickets for the Radio Free East Timor gig are now available for $12 and $10 concession.
