Mission Songs Project by Jessie Lloyd
8 May 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Profoundly moving, Mission Songs Project reveals what daily life was like for Indigenous Australians on Christian missions and state-run settlements.
These unique songs performed by an extraordinary trio of Indigenous musicians consist of almost forgotten stories that illuminate the history of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait elders, families and communities.
Presented as an acoustic trio, Jessie Lloyd takes audiences on a musical journey across Australia. She engages through intimate storytelling, moving harmonies and historical insights. Using humour and truth to share the voices of elders as they would around a warm campfire or kitchen table.
Mission Songs Project faithfully explores the musical journey of Indigenous Australian music as Jessie Lloyd connects the traditional with the contemporary, revealing the continuation of cultural practice and song traditions into the 21st Century. Presented by Arts Margaret River and Produced by Performing Lines
