A musical celebration of country, reaching across cultures, time and place
This free concert at Waringarri features a special music and dance Wangga performance by the Waringarri Performers.
Tura presents the Sonus2 Tour with a program that speaks directly to the places and communities of the Kimberley. The Sonus2 Tour features Kimberley singer-songwriters Olive Knight and Stephen Pigram, alongside Iranian percussionist Esfandiar Shahmir, cellist Tristen Parr and flautist Tos Mahoney. The artists are renowned in their own right and now come together at Waringarri Aboriginal Arts to present a wealth of original, new music.
Sonus2 is a meeting of cultural forces, ancient and contemporary, through songs of outback Australia and newly commissioned music for the tour. New songs, new works, and new arrangements feature in a program reflecting the Kimberley communities and landscape travelled through. Tura presents this cross-cultural journey weaving a rich tapestry of uniquely Australian music, celebrating the sounds of the Kimberley.
