Monica Jasmine Karo also known as MpathSoul – is a singer-songwriter, actor and spoken-word artist. Monica has been performing in Naarm for 10 years and has an authentic soulful voice, highlighting her Gunai, Gunditjmara and mixed European heritage. She infuses fiery spoken-word poetry with her music and her work has been described as “connected to earth and spirit, portraying important messages of woman’s wisdom”. In 2021 Monica performed alongside Allara, Bumpy, Alice Skye, Ensemble Dutala and friends, for the Opening of the Yaluk-ut Weelam Ngargee Festival and the opening of Yirramboi Festival. Monica performed as a leading role in Ilbijerri Theatre Company’s production, Heart Is A Wasteland by John Harvey, music by Lydia Fairhall, directed by Rachael Maza, premiering the sold-out season at Darwin Festival 2021 and will be releasing her debut album in 2022.
Monica will be joined by her good friend and singer-songwriter Nina Rose who blends her velvety vocals and mellowing guitar rhythms taking you on a folky acoustic carpet ride. Influenced by artists such as Tracy Chapman, Emmylou Harris and Nina Simone, her original songs tell tales of love, loss and everything in between. Whether she’s singing in bars, on the street, in nursing homes, to her little nephews, she brings a contagious energy that will get you grooving along.
We know you’ll enjoy this hour long performance.

MEET THE ARTIST > ANNA HOYLE
Join curator Juliette Hanson for a lively conversation with Melbourne-based artist Anna Hoyle about her recent work in Your choc-mint pelvik floor is so boring.
In this exhibition Hoyle presents a collection of ‘fictional’ book paintings and works on paper that have been inspired by social trends such as the self-help book and the wellness industry. Hoyle’s work also addresses issues related to consumerism and the environment with an ironic and sometimes absurd approach that combines comedy and tragedy in equal measure.
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get involved in this live event at Linden New Art.
WHEN > Thursday 24 February 2022
TIME > 6.30PM to 7.30PM
WHERE > Linden New Art
