A bold new commission by First Nations artist residency program recipient Amos Roach.

Award-winning musician, dancer, director and proud Djab Wurrung/Gunditjmara and Ngarrindjeri man Amos Roach premieres his new commission as part of MIJF and the Australian Art Orchestra’s (AAO) inaugural First Nations artist residency program.

Amos has played the keyboard, guitar, bass and Yidaki since the age of eight, and is acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest Yidaki players. Performing alongside members of the AAO and the Murrundaya Yepengna Dancers, this new work is informed by his practice using traditional instruments, songs, music and dance to tell stories of Songlines, Family and Country.
