Tickets for Port Fairy Folk Festival 2020
I’m so excited to announce that my kids record Nali & Friends is released today! You can download or purchase here.
Nali & Friends is a tale about unconventional, oddball animals from different parts of the world. I co-wrote this with longtime friend and collaborator, filmmaker Rhys Graham, the stories were inspired by our journey through Uganda and Kenya working with The Thin Green Line Foundation – an international organisation that provides welfare and support to Wildlife Rangers. It was during this trip that we had the opportunity to get up close with baby animals and observe their quirky personalities.
It was one of the most rewarding musical experiences I’ve had to date. There are elements, to this story of Nali, which talk about being nice to people and being a good person.
To celebrate the release, I’m taking the songs out on the road for my first run of kids shows!! I’m bringing all my new friends such as Bwindi, Putu and Tembo along for the ride also! You can catch me, Nali & Friends on Saturday, July 13 at Factory Theatre in Sydney, and Saturday, July 20 at Melba Spiegeltent in Melbourne. All the ticketing details are below, can’t wait for these shows so we can sing and dance along with the family together! Dx

Ranger to Ranger follows the epic journey of nine Indigenous Australian Rangers, along with myself (Dan Sultan), as they travel to Kenya, Africa, to share knowledge, culture and music with a tribe of Maasai Community Rangers.
Through the lens of award-winning filmmaker Rhys Graham, this film tells the often-untold story of the sacrifices and strength that bind together the international Ranger family.
2018 has been a year of transition for Dan Sultan. Having taken 6 months off and out of the spotlight to recalibrate and steady the ship, he is now ready to take on a whole bunch of new, exciting and fresh challenges.
The first project to see the light of day in 2019 will be the aptly titled ‘AVIARY TAKES’, a collection of older, existing back catalogue songs and a smattering of new tracks including a couple of out-of-the-blue covers and fresh tunes stripped back and all recorded in ‘one vocal take’ at The Aviary Studio’s in inner city Melbourne.
The AVIARY TAKES collection will be released early in 2019 and to celebrate its release, Sultan will head back out on the road armed with a guitar, a keyboard and a fresh batch of anecdotes and bad ‘dad’ jokes!
The tour run sees Dan traverse the country in regional areas that he is both familiar and not so familiar with.
Says Sultan; “I’m really looking forward to hitting the regional road with ‘The Aviary Takes’ tour. It’ll be good to make up for the shows I had to cancel earlier this year. ‘The Aviary Takes’ are a group of songs I recorded recently and they include old, current, new tracks with a couple of surprise covers thrown in. It’ll be great to see all of your lovely faces at the shows”.
I’ll be taking my solo show on the road for a few exclusive shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth to wrap up the year.
I’ve spent the past few weeks in the studio working on various projects, so I’ll be playing songs from my back catalogue as well as a few new surprises at these shows.
Hope to see you there. Dx
