Partners in life and on the stage, Alinta and Benjin Maza have joined forces to create life that is Balairi.


Writing encapsulating melody and lyrics, serving eclectic funk, soul, reggae and R&B grooves, Balairi are the yin and yang energy that bring sweet vibrations to the masses.

Between these two seasoned First Nations performers, they have performed at festivals and venues such as Woodford folk festival, Byron Bay Bluesfest, Brisbane Powerhouse, QPAC, Yonder, Clancestry, La Boite’ Roundhouse Theatre and have also worked alongside numerous creatives throughout the arts industry.

Having recently released debut Single ‘Red’ earlier this year under Alinta. (produced by Benjin Maza), Balairi are working to release more new music and projects under their co-label Wanpun Love Collective.
