CIMF21: Concert #7 - Hand to Earth : Canberra International Music Festival 2021
Twelve Yuwaalaraay hands create a traditional cloak of possum skins. The ceremonial garment then takes on its own life as a work of living art: as music. Hand to Earth is a celebration of First Nations artists: women’s culture from Lightning Ridge followed by Yolgnu Songmen from Arnhem Land.
Due to COVID-19 this event will be run twice:
Sunday May 2, 1:30pm, National Gallery of Australia
Sunday May 2, 3:30pm, National Gallery of Australia
We hope to release more seats dependent on an easing of capacity restrictions. Please continue to check back often.
