KHIN MYINT

Khin’s love of music was born between the ethnic contradictions of his suburb and home in the 90s. His father was a Burmese refugee who married a Ten-Pound-Pom and settled in Perth. Raised in a house with a looming wooden fence that separated Eastern traditions from Western ones, Khin forged an artistic focus fascinated with liminality (the experience of being an “in-betweener”).

Loved by folk audiences, he popped up in the early 2000s with evocative hybrid-folk songwriting. He performed and told stories in the festival circuit around the country, gaining a reputation as an intriguing storyteller whose music was hypnotic.

Recently awarded a fellowship for his debut novel by the Wheeler Centre, Khin has also returned to the folk scene. His love of music and storytelling fit into a special niche, creating an experience for audiences that is both light and deep, whimsical and moving.
