Cultural Connections: Sharing Stories and Songs from Yuin Country at the National Museum of Australia

June 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm GMT

Throughout this 75-minute show, the choir’s songs, written and performed in the Dhurga language, are interwoven with the songs and stories of the musicians from Candelo and the powerful words of Yuin hip hop artist Gabadu, creating a unique and inspiring musical collaboration.

The choir sings about the importance of maintaining their cultural knowledge, knowing how to live on Country and honouring their Ancestors and ancient stories. Collaborating with the choir, The New Graces, Sam Martin, Heath Cullen, David Ross Macdonald (The Waifs), Raechelle Kennedy, Pete Wild and Tamlyn Magee (Anactoria) sing of their life experiences and relationships that have led them to Yuin Country.

Together, they sing about the change they would like to see in the world, showing audiences the power and beauty of community and how it can enrich our national cultural life.
