Triana Hernandez is an award-winning Peruvian–Australian writer and filmmaker based in Melbourne. Working predominantly as a music journalist and music video director, her work explores the poetic and political nature of sound. Hernandez is currently working on a book about identity politics within Australia's music scene.
Courtney Sina Meredith describes her work as an 'ongoing discussion of contemporary urban life with an underlying Pacific politique.' She launched her first book of poetry, Brown Girls in Bright Red Lipstick, at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair, and has since published a short story collection, Tail of the Taniwha, to critical acclaim.
