From the streets of Footscray – where two young emcees struggled hard for their voices to be heard – to signed, internationally globetrotting, festival regulars, the Diafrix duo of Azmarino and MoMo certainly encompass the dream of overcoming hardship and obscurity to realise their own. From being participants in the early days of the Visible Music Mentoring Program in 2005, Diafrix have now grown to become mentors and ambassadors, lending a hand to the next wave of emerging emcees, rhyming for their story to be heard.

As part of the conversation MC MoMo will talk about Diafrix’s journey from mentees to mentors, the experiences lived throughout the different stages of their career, where to go next, and advice for those who likewise dream big. Visible Biz is an off shoot of Multicultural Arts Victoria’s Visible Music Mentoring Program, providing music industry advice for emerging and diverse musicians.

The program runs business skills workshops and keynote conversations throughout the year, offering veteran insight in to the industry while creating networking opportunities with industry representatives and the wider music community.

This conversation is presented as part of Emerge Festival 2014, which presents new refugee and emerging artists who have recently settled in Australia. From May 17 – July 5, Multicultural Arts Victoria will celebrate the 11th anniversary of Emerge Festival, showcasing talented artists from Melbourne’s emerging refugee communities and the diverse cultures that have woven colourful and intricate patterns into the identity of our unique city.
