Description

The Australian Art Orchestra and the Young Wagilak Group from Ngukurr, Arnem Land perform 'Crossing Roper Bar' at the Perth Concert Hall as part of the Tura New Music Top End Tour of 2008. In this collaboration the ancient Manikay song cycles of the Yolgnu songmen come together with the very new music of the Australian Art Orchestra to form a unique exchange of knowledge and culture.

2010 marks the sixth year of the Crossing Roper Bar collaboration. For more information about this project see the projects page of our website at © AAO/Tura New Music 2008
