For both Anmatyerr women from central Australia and Kam (in Chinese, Dong 侗) women from south-western China, singing is associated with feelings and thoughts about home.
The Sydney Conservatorium of Music presents Songs of Home: Anmatyerr and Kam singing traditions, a very special evening where ‘home’ is brought to life through Anmatyerr and Kam songs, translations and imagery; and hear the unique song traditions of these two cultures performed for the first time in a musical exchange.
When: Wednesday 12 April 2017, 6.30pm followed by Q&A with the performers – cost: $25 / $15. You are also invited to attend the book launch at 6pm.
Where: Music Workshop, Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Macquarie Street, Sydney
