Combat Wombat are a political hip-hop crew based in Melbourne, Australia. Armed only with samplers, mics and turntables, powered by solar energy and an uncompromising belief in Truth over Spin, Combat Wombat delve into issues of national identity, indigenous rights, the government’s treatment of refugees and alternative energy, bringing reports from the front line of resistance.
Renowned for taking bass bins hostage and blasting raw political fire in these unsettling times, MC Elf Tranzporter, MC Izzy Brown, producer Monkey Marc and DJ Wasabi will take you on an unforgettable ride of truth and rights, mixed with dub-heavy bass and boom bap style hip hop beats.
Combat Wombat have performed in refugee camps in Palestine, with Palestinian hop hop artists in Israel, and toured extensively through Europe. They have also performed at festivals and events around Australia, and supported bands and artists such as Public Enemy, M1 from Dead Prez and Akil from Jurassic 5.

Gifted producer and musician Bal Singh aka Shūnya explores and layers intricate traditional Indian with contemporary bass driven sounds to create a sonic landscape of dreams and story.
The word Shūnya is the philosophical concept of the non-duality between infinite and finite. It is represented by the circle “O” and it reflects his personal and artistic philosophy of a non-duality in genre and style that has been discovered through a very unique musical path that reconciles with, but simultaneously celebrates diversity.
I am honoured to have been featured on ‘Akashic Record Store’ and ‘Elves in the Bodhi Forest’ with more collaborations in the works.
