Vanuatu artist Tio announces festival appearances and headline tour in Australia & New Zealand

One of Melanesia’s finest singer-songwriters has announced a massive 12-date tour around Australia and New Zealand for 2024, including appearances at WOMADelaide and WOMAD NZ.

Tio, who comes from Ambrym Island in Vanuatu, was scheduled to tour Australia and New Zealand in 2021 to celebrate his critically acclaimed 2020 album Sorousian. The pandemic scuttled his plans, but now he is back to play his unique island roots music at festivals and headline shows throughout the country.
