“A concert of astonishing artistry and diversity” RealTime

Tura New Music and The Australian Art Orchestra have been collaborating on the development of the Crossing Roper Bar project since 2008 and, in 2013, present a new chapter of the internationally acclaimed cross cultural project with legendary Broome-based musician, Stephen Pigram. Crossing Roper Bar is a visionary exploration of the music traditions of Australia’s first people by The Australian Art Orchestra in collaboration with the Young Wagilak Group, traditional song men of Ngukkurr, South East Arnhem Land. Young Wagilak Group members, Benjamin, David and Daniel Wilfred collaborate with Australia’s pre-eminent jazz pianist, Paul Grabowsky and members of The AAO – Stephen Magnusson and Rajiv Jayaweera – in an electrifying marriage of the very old with the very new. Crossing Roper Bar is a celebration of country, of ceremony, and of the power of music to build enduring bridges across cultures, time and space. This chapter in the life of the Crossing Roper Bar project allows for a new collaboration with Stephen Pigram. Crossing Roper Bar 2013 brings virtuoso traditional Indigenous and non-Indigenous musicians together and – with their audience – embark on a breathtaking musical journey of discovery. Crossing Roper Bar Tour 2013 is proudly supported by Total E&P Australia
