Music Exchange

What’s it all about?

Nando’s Music Exchange (MX) is part of our long-term commitment to fuel emerging talent across arts and culture.

The initiative brings together up-and-coming Aussie artists and creatives with music industry heavyweights for local workshops and panel talks, before sending a handpicked group of emerging talent and one mentor to the Global Music Exchange in London to help broaden their skills through song-writing collaboration, and gives them global industry exposure. By the end of the week-long program, each participant walks away with an original track and the opportunity to release it locally.

Hunter 505 and Charlotte Rochecouste a.k.a. Charlotte Adelle!
