The result of five years of musical collaboration, Kimberley Echoes is a powerful cross-cultural celebration of Kimberley country and its people.
Curated by Tura, the highly acclaimed production features The Narli Ensemble (Nar-lee) in a close collaboration between high profile First Nation artists and some of the country’s finest instrumentalists, Mark Atkins (didgeridoo virtuoso and singer) Stephen Pigram (guitar and vocals), violinist Erkki Veltheim, guitarist Stephen Magnusson, cellist Tristen Parr, percussionist Joe Talia and flautist Tos Mahoney (Tura Founder and Artistic Director).
In Bendigo, The Narli Ensemble is joined by special guest Bart Willoughby.
Songs by Pigram and Atkins, arranged by this unique ensemble, are juxtaposed with new music created by the collaboration all reflecting the complexity and beauty of the Kimberley. Collaborations with local artists, experiences of traditional Joonba song and dance and touring through the provocative Kimberley landscape have all weaved their influence into this work and program.
Running time is 80 minutes, no interval.
Age recommendation of 5+.
