Reflection brings together two Indigenous musical icons, William Barton and Stephen Pigram, with some of Australia’s finest instrumentalists for a program of music that reaches across cultures, time and place. This unique combination of artists present sounds and songs as old as time alongside new stories of country and passion.
The program features the unique Broome sounds of Stephen Pigram, including songs from his recent solo album Wanderer and new songs written for the tour; the enchanting sounds of solo didgeridoo by a master; solo works by all the artists and new works for the ensemble by Errki Veltheim and Tristen Parr. The program will also feature new collaborative works created by the ensemble.
