If you’ve already seen them in action, you’d know that for The Fifths, it’s all about the experience, bringing together a blend of eastern and western music to make you dance. So diverse is the music that they have created their own genre—‘Electro Pop Bollywood’!
Given their style of music, The Fifths have been invited to play at various iconic venues – Federation Square, Melbourne Town Hall, The Toff, LuWow, The HiFi Bar, Trak and several Diwali Fests, to name a few. In addition, they’ve also played with legendary Bollywood artists such as Udit Narayan and Lucky Ali on their Australian tours.
The band launched their first home-grown production in 2014 with Bhoot and have grand plans for 2017 with new singles, videos and a tour of Australia and NZ in the planning.
The Fifths are now the first all-Indian band chosen to be a part of Melbourne’s prestigious all-night extravaganza, Whitenight, showcasing Indian Music at a flagship event. Make sure to head down and show your love to the team. They’ll be playing at the World Stage at Birrarung Marr.
Bollywood, African, Mambo, Colombian, Mexican… come and enjoy the colourful spectacle of The World—Live at Birrarung Marr.
Offering total entertainment for the whole family, The World—Live is a celebration of live music and dance from a cross-section of the 140 cultures that are represented in the City of Melbourne, one of the most harmonious and culturally diverse cities in the world.
