Mango: Street Performer
Inspired at an early age to develop his creativity, Mango has continued to do so throughout his life. Circumstance led to the change from singing in a band to busking on Beaumont Street in Hamilton, Newcastle.
“It’s about interacting with people,” says Mango. “Talking to the people every day. You would be amazed at what we actually see in life.”
Mango has a passion for music and loves to share it with others. ‘Little Star’, inspired by Mozart’s “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” is featured here. If you take the time to stop and talk to Mango on the street, he might ask you a few questions or discuss the course of life. His lyrics, melodies, harmonica skills and strumming are enjoyed by a wide range of people passing by.
