Sydney Festival, Yuwaalaraay Artists, and Ensemble Offspring
Experience a sonic and visual journey through Yuwaalaraay country in north-western New South Wales. The world premiere of -barra, a collaboration between Ensemble Offspring and acclaimed Yuwaalaraay musician and storyteller Nardi Simpson (Song of the Crocodile), will wrap you in the landscape that inspired it, through an evocative original music composition and striking visuals.
Yuwaalaraay artists Nardi Simpson, Lucy Simpson and Brendan Odee Welsh join forces with Sydney’s musical mavericks, Ensemble Offspring, led by internationally acclaimed percussionist Claire Edwardes, jazz pianist Kevin Hunt, and Barayagal choir for an unforgettable narrative into the Australian interior. Let the river sing and the red dirt rumble.
From Nhungga-barra dirt country to the flat plains of Mirriaa-barra, from the swamplands of Murrgu-barra to the riverlands of Garrii-barra, the artists have come together to create a sonic mapping of the land through the four distinct regions they call home.
