After a superb year of music discovery, the World Music Open Mic is now Suitcase: World Music Soirée, an event that recognises the invaluable heritage that musicians carry with them as they move from one place to another.
And we are relocating at the fabulous Open Studio, home of so much diverse music and the most welcoming of spaces.
These events do not adhere to any particular genre or style. They offer musicians from all over the world an opportunity to be heard in a city that abounds with diversity but has very limited outlets for showcasing it musically.
This month's special guest (and host) will be the incredible Jessica Hitchcock, award-winning opera singer, actor and songwriter with family origins from Saibai in the Torres Straits. Her charismatic stage presence and versatile performance sphere drawn on over 15 years of musical experience have seen Jessica transition from a Jazz background into the world of opera after joining Short Black Opera Company where she has worked as an artist and teacher for the last five years.
