Kate gets the band back together

KATE Ceberano is staging a mini reunion of her band I’m Talking later this year.

Ceberano is a co-curator of the Live. Love. Life festival in Daylesford from November 14 to 18.

The event will see Ceberano and Zan Abeyrante performing I’m Talking songs with local dance band Sex on Toast.

“Zan and I haven’t sung together in 30 years, so it’s going to be ace,” Ceberano said.

“It’s just a little pop-up show, we’ll do a few tunes and dance our brains out. Zan and I have reconnected since the reissue of (I’m Talking’s 1986 album) Bear Witness a few months ago. This could lead to some I’m Talking shows, we’ll see.”

The Live. Love. Life festival will focus on music, art, culture and wellness, with Ceberano working on the project all year with the likes of artist David Bromley, a co-curator of the event.

“People are escaping to Daylesford because they’re looking to an alternative way to escape the future,” Ceberano said. “Daylesford is facing the future using every single ounce of knowledge in the history of food, culture and wellness. There’s no other place like it in Australia as far as I’m concerned.”

Ceberano has curated a string of musical guests including Katie Noonan, Deborah Conway, Vika and Linda Bull, Lior, Paul Grabowsky and more.

“There’s been a lot of talk about not enough women on festival bills, so we just address it and do something about it,” Ceberano said. “Daylesford is like a village, a lot of the venues have a small capacity so you get to see these artists in an intimate and concentrated state.”
