South Sudanese musicians in Australia have initiated a process of establishing the first independent association in Australia.

Artists will meet in Melbourne on the 7th of March, 2015 to announce the body which seeks to unite South Sudanese artists in diaspora.

The organization will seek to develop the unique talent and link South Sudanese abroad with those back at home.

Grey Bull, who is already well known in South Sudan for hit songs such as ‘’Pills of Dance floor’’, ‘’Money can’t buy Love’’ and ‘’who I am, South Sudanese’’ is currently championing the initiative.

“The organization will promote local events, facilitate interactive activities to keep youth off the streets”, says Grey Bull.

Mr. Bull says the association will be a non-profitable organization which shall foster and promotion the work of its members, provide technical advice.

“It will most importantly create links between South Sudanese artists in Australia and South Sudanese artists in South Sudan” he added.

The association will be a replicate, but separate, of the current South Sudan Artists Association being headed by Lam Tungwar in Juba.
