I’ve written previously about Hobart’s MONA – Museum of Old and New Art.
Each year they hold a Festival of Music and Art – FOMA.
We went to the festival on Saturday, a full day of music on various stages, both outdoors and within the museum galleries. Musicians are invited from across the globe. We listened to a cellist from Baghdad, a Patagonian folk trio, a Sudanese singer, a classical pianist from Ukraine, soul singer from USA, Tasmanian choirs and jazz orchestra.
It is intriguing when you don’t know the musicians or their music. The festival is always an eclectic mix of sounds, creativity, people, in such a great space.
The museum has recently expanded with a new wing, new art installations, new walkways and a new tapas bar and lounge.
MONA is one of Hobart’s special places.
