Coco's Lunch are Australia's multi award-winning, magical purveyors of original vocal repertoire. With 7 critically acclaimed albums under their belt, these women have won the hearts of audiences in 13 different countries, received countless awards, been featured on compilation albums worldwide, and inspired a generation of singers. Described in Australia as a ‘national treasure’ (Herald Sun), Coco’s Lunch are pioneers in the composition and performance of unique vocal repertoire that is now performed by vocal ensembles and choirs globally.
Featuring Melbourne singer/songwriter/percussionists Jacqueline Gawler, Lisa Young, Gabrielle MacGregor and Emma Gilmartin, Coco’s Lunch creates a distinct voice of unparalleled beauty and originality. On their critically acclaimed new album Misra Chappu, the Coco’s Lunch composers draw deeply from the rich sonic palettes of Australia, India and Africa, and between the four singers a rare alchemy brings these stories to life. Soaring angelic lines and arresting rhythmic interplay, high vibration poetry and breathtaking harmonic movement set a new benchmark for the ensemble.
