Suns of Mercury is a creative collaboration between performing artists around the world.
Celebrating the power of music to build unity across languages and cultures, the project takes inspiration from the ancient concept of The Messenger. The forward and backward-looking faces of Janus, the winged boots of the emissary Hermes, and the wisdom of the child Echú Elegguá have in common the virtue of exchange. Led by University of Melbourne Professor Adrian Hearn, Suns of Mercury celebrates this virtue by blending folkloric influences with emerging styles in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas. Crossing musical borders is our passion.
