From Mparntwe/Alice Springs all the way up to Darwin and back again, five prominent Centralian musicians, 40+ members of a beloved community choir and one passionate choir master have combined their talents to bring you a soaring and uniquely Central Australian performance. Together, this supergroup will be performing as part of this year’s Darwin Festival, followed by one night only at the Araluen Arts Centre in Mparntwe/Alice Springs.
In a testament to the collaborative nature of the Central Australian music scene, singer/songwriters Xavia, Casii Williams, Paul Ah Chee, Bambadino and Resin Moon have teamed up with arranger and Alice Sings choir director Edward Gould to bring you a one-hour performance of original Central Australian music, accompanied by over 40 voices in the Alice Sings Community Choir.
Here, you’ll experience a new work that brings together the original music of these accomplished artists, inspired by the stark and fertile landscape of Central Australia.
This diverse collective of musicians have collaborated across multiple music projects over many years, but never before as a united mega-ensemble. The Endless Sky Tour reflects the creative and generative impact of these musical encounters to bring you two heartwarming and inspiring performances.
