Updated: Interview with Vivid Ideas performer ILUKA: The moment I cease to travel is when I have lost my sense of curiosity and wonder for the world

Today, we wanted to re-run our interview with retro singer/songwriter Iluka who will be flying in between her support slot for Killing Heidi just to sing for us at Vivid Ideas! We look forward to hosting you at our first event Pathway to Platform. In the meantime, enjoy this interview from February this year. 

Nikki Thorburn's voice was made to tell stories. The Sydney-based artist - strike that, Sydney-based-"ish" more on that later - is better known under her musical moniker ILUKA whose voice consistently compels you to listen. Now, she has released two new singles from her upcoming EP Blue My Soul which is due out 17 February, and they are bangers. If these two songs, Blue My Soul and Blue Jean Baby, are anything to go by, the rest of the album will continue to cement her place as an Australian artist we should all be proud of. ILUKA took the time to chat with Music Love all about her new album and tour, being a spiritual person and how she will never cease to travel the world.

The exhibition and accompanying documentary,  which will be shown tomorrow from midday, was two years in the planning. By Julie Kerr
