sounds of our town

hosted by Jumping Fences


Welcome to the homepage of Foco Nuevo, the regular performance space for Jumping Fences, where we hold our online music events on the First Friday of every month.

Streaming on Friday 6th November, 8pm AEST

CLICK HERE to begin.

As COVID-19 restrictions are eased we are streaming a performance from our backyard! Joining us for this special occasion are Caroline Hammond and Ovidio Orellana.

Caroline Hammond is a more than just a singer songwriter; she is a natural weaver of song stories, playing with the tapestry of life and spinning joyous music from the grace and beauty of the overlooked, the everyday and the commonplace. Caroline will be sharing songs from her latest album, 'The Grace of Gravity'. Evolving over three years of solo visits to a secluded ocean-front town, it is an album of intimate introspection and a glorious celebration of life, music, and character.

We have been collaborating with Ovidio Orellana for many years since performing Latin American music togther in the group Gaviota in the late 80s. Before emigrating to Australia, Ovidio was a renowned singer on television in Guatemala and Mexico. His exuberant style and wonderful singing are not to be missed.

Joining Jumping Fences this month will be Ross Gwyther and James Harper, playing our unique mix of original and Latin American songs. We look forward to seeing you online!
