Xavier Rudd fans will be excited to know that the remarkable one-man-band will be joining the Boomerang Festival lineup on the October long weekend.
The acclaimed self-made muso will join Dr Dijiniyini Gondarra OAM (from northeast Arnhem Land), and journalist Jeff McMullen onstage on Saturday October 5 at Boomerang Festival to present a mix of uplifting music, thought-provoking dialogue, songs, stories and visuals from the award-winning film Our Generation.
The event will include a discussion about ongoing racism and oppression against Aboriginal people, with a deep current of hope that things can change with understanding and togetherness.
‘We are thrilled and personally proud to be able to provide this unique meeting of minds as part of a wonderful new festival,’ said Boomerang festival director Rhoda Roberts.
Xavier Rudd has re-introduced a lot of Australians to the sounds and stories of Australia’s first people. His new album Spirit Bird is a defining moment in the evolution of one of Australia’s most important artists.
From Arnhem Land to the northern rivers he comes with an array of guitars, didgeridoos, stomp boxes, percussion and dialogue.
