Emma Donovan and Archie Roach unveil back-to-back Melbourne shows
In collaboration with the 2017 Yirramboi First Nations Festival, Arts Centre Melbourne presents two of the most crucial voices to represent our Aboriginal community.
Emma Donovan & The Putbacks will pay tribute to pioneering singer/songwriter Ruby Hunter and Archie Roach brings his new album Let Love Rule to the stage a night later.
Donovan is a soul and funk troubadour who cites Hunter as a strong musical influence. In commemoration, Donovan alongside her rhythm combo The Putbacks will perform tracks from Hunter's groundbreaking 1994 debut album Thoughts Within.
Roach has been labelled 'the definitive voice of Indigenous Australia'. He'll be joined by members of the award-winning Short Black Opera and Dhungala Children's Choir for what proves to be a fantastic show.
