Other Plans 

In 2019, Coco’s Lunch will present Other Plans, bringing to life the breathtaking art form of South Indian konnakol (vocal percussion) in a bold new way. Hand-picked by Barry Humphries to premiere at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, the largest cabaret festival in the world, the group packed out the Adelaide Festival Centre for two consecutive nights with this sparkling showcase of award-winning songs and elegant stagecraft. Other Plans takes audiences on a captivating journey through new konnakol-based works composed by Lisa Young, including the fiery new award-winning single Other Plans, and well-loved songs from the group’s acclaimed albums Blueprint and A Whole New Way of Getting Dressed.
