Joe Camilleri

Joe Camilleri is an icon of Australian music and without doubt one of Melbourne’s finest musical exports.  He has paved the way for four generations of singers and songwriters, writing and recording an enormous catalogue of incredible music over an astonishing 45 years. From 1964 to 2009, Camilleri has gigged, written, toured, wailed and shaken it. From Altona to Cooktown, from Oslo to Cannes and all over his beloved hometown of Melbourne, The Pope of Elwood has shown fans and critics alike a performer with an undeniable energy and love of it all. It is this love, this sense of adventure that keeps Camilleri going and the punters coming back for more.
