Ancestral Modern Musical Event featuring Gawurra
Free to members; admission required for not-yet-members
Space is limited.
Join up-and-coming indigenous singer-songwriter Stanley “Gawurra” Gaykamangu for an exclusive performance in the galleries of Ancestral Modern. Originally from Milingimbi, Arnhem Land, in the Northern Territory of Australia, Gawurra sings about his life in his own language of Gupapuyngu, using both traditional songlines and modern melodies. Praised by music critics around the world, Gawurra was named New Talent of the Year at Australia’s 2016 National Indigenous Music Awards, where his debut, Ratja Yaliyali, earned the Album of the Year, Cover Art, and Film Clip awards.
Presented in collaboration with the Kluge-Rue Aboriginal Art Collection.
