Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
I developed my sound and am forever developing my sound by being inspired by different aspects of my life and compiling it together with knowledge of sound and different instruments. Creating music has no limitation.
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
Emotion, I think that's the centre of all creation.
What can punters expect from a Tash Sultana live show?
A hell of a lot of energy from one tiny little person.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
So Soldier - #1 Dads
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
The last local show I went to was a dude who busks around Melbourne called Reuben Stone. This guy can literally do and create anything all by live looping. He's a huge part of my motivation.
Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.
There's a few who I've met around over the years who've become some of my really good friends and I suppose we just push each other to work really hard and further inspire each other to be better musicians. Lyall Moloney, Reuben Stone, Josh Cashman to name a few.
What are your plans for the rest of 2016?
Got some pretty crazy plans for the rest of the year - taking things overseas. Kind of all seems a bit surreal to be honest.
