We have teamed up with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and others for an event not to be missed this NAIDOC. Under the baton of Chief Conductor Jaime Martín, One Song: The Music of Archie Roach will feature a stellar line-up of artists who draw on their connections to the Australian legend to bring new life to his iconic songs, 5 and 6 July at Hamer Hall.

An evening of powerful song and sublime storytelling, One Song will celebrate the enormous legacy of Gunditjamara (Kirrae Whurrong/Djab Wurrung), Bundjalung Senior Elder, song man and storyteller, the enormous legacy of Archie Roach AC AM, as part of the MSO’s NAIDOC Week program.
