Join us for a night of unique Australian music with some of Sydney’s best improvising musicians.

7.30pm: FOLX

Will Gilbert - trumpet

Mary Rapp - double bass

Dom Robinson - drums

Often one starts with a simple idea, or what looks like one, and finds it to be surrounded by complexities.... Faults, feelings, fears.... all are part of the music, part of life, part of lives.

8.30pm: YULUGI

"The end result wasn’t just cross-cultural, but also cross-artform....an immersive,

new contemporary Australian art music." Cultural Omnivore

Yulugi is a fresh collaboration between Gumaroy Newman, an Indigenous song man and didjeridu player descending from the Gamilaroi and Wakka Wakka nations, and Keyna Wilkins, a NSW-based composer and musician (piano, flute). Yulugi is a dialogue across cultures, inspired by the Australian landscape and animals, often accompanied by stunning projected Australian landscape images of indigenous photographer Wayne Quillam. 'Yulugi' means play, dance or have fun in Gamilaroi, one of the Northern NSW Indigenous languages. The sonic scapes created are a melting pot of indigenous and western sounds and textures, and inspired by the Australian landscape and animals, this duo explores spiritual awakening through improvised music.

The duo features Keyna Wilkins, a pioneering flutist, pianist and composer and one of three national finalists in the APRA/AMCOS Art Music Awards for Individual Excellence 2018, and Gumaroy Newman, is an in-demand didgeridu player who has performed all over the world in indigenous ceremonies and concerts alike including performing with Shane Howard. Stylistically broad, this duo will will take you on a journey into the heart of Australia with dream-like sequences alongside landscape depictions and animal mimicry and echoes of tribal lores, drawing on a myriad of musical influences, to create a unique and authentic soundscape of Australia.

The duo formed early 2019 and have numerous successful shows around Sydney including opening the Australian Flute Festival at Sydney Conservatorium in July. Performances in 2020 include Melbourne Recital Centre May 29th.
