Inspired by the words of Alexis Wright, winner of Australia's prestigious Miles Franklin Award, dirtsong takes audiences on a powerful musical journey through Australia's cultural heartland - this is a performance that will move the heart and lift the spirit.

Set against a backdrop of stunning moving images and text, dirtsong features unforgettable songs performed in 11 different Aboriginal languages by some of Australia's most extraordinary performers, backed by an exciting ensemble of the country's finest musicians.

In exploring the connections between people, language and land, dirtsong draws a map of Australia in music - a map that charts the cultural and linguistic diversity of the country. dirtsong does not simply reinforce or affirm cultures and traditions; it also actively creates them. Many of the songs featured in dirtsong have been newly commissioned for this project.

dirtsong features the talents of Black Arm Band, a collective of renowned Indigenous singers, musicians, performers and actors from across Australia, and is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating the very best of contemporary Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music, culture, experience and identity.
