Murga is a form of popular musical theatre performed primarily in Montevideo, Uruguay during the Carnival season.
Es Lo Que Hay (meaning: It's What There Is) was born in Sydney's south-western suburb of Fairfield. With its extravagant costumes and wild face paint, these would be Pierrots sing their dreams, fears and values.
Comprising of one flamboyant stage director on guitar, a choir of 13 and a percussion trio, Es Lo Que Hay's criticism (principle ingredient of the Uruguayan Murga) focuses on national/international issues and their local community.
Unafraid to strike back, this Murga will pack a punch in the eyes of any spectator and do so filled with harmonies, joy, colours, movement, nostalgia, satire and a percussion trio that will blow your mind.
