Narli - A Musical Celebration
In Fitzroy Crossing, Tura joins with Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency and the Fitzroy Valley District High School to present a free community concert.
As well as the touring program, FVDHS students, who have recently worked with Tura Musician-in-Residence Gillian Howell, will present songs created during that residency.
Famed Fitzroy Express founder and leader Danny Marr will also join in the concert.
Tura’s 2018 Narli Tour brings together Indigenous musical icon Mark Atkins, with a colourful ensemble of instrumentalists from around Australia. This is a program of original new music created in collaboration with some of Australia’s finest musicians, coming together for this tour as the Narli Ensemble: cellist Judith Hamann, percussionist Joe Talia and flautist Tos Mahoney.
New songs, new works and new arrangements feature in a program grown out of these creative collaborations, reflecting the Kimberley communities and landscape traveled.
