National Housing Conference 2015–Merindas

Opening plenary performance by Merindas

Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, Perth

28 Oct 2015

Australia’s premier Indigenous female Motown duo Merindas performed during the opening session. Merindas are a talented, and very energetic Aboriginal contemporary soul duo consisting of singers Candice Lorrae and Kristel Kickett, both amazing performers in their own right.

They have supported some of Australia’s biggest stars, including Kasey Donovan, Christine Anu and Troy Cassar-Daley. The name ‘Merinda’ comes from the Aboriginal Eora language — meaning beautiful woman — and is a tribute to their Indigenous heritage.
