Highly esteemed musician Bobby Alu and his charismatic band the Palm Royale have fast become one of the nation’s favourite festival acts, renowned for their signature ‘hammock music’ and high vibes. Themed by Bobby’s Polynesian heritage and born on the East Coast of Australia, the music has a fresh, simple sound powered by ukulele, Pacific beats, catchy songs, tasty four-part harmony and powerful log drumming, with hints of soul and reggae. A multi-award winning songwriter and ukulele master with a smooth and silky voice, Bobby Alu’s talents don’t stop there: he is also one of Australia’s best drummers.
