Wuigada – Gagada (To Sing – Loud) Kutcha Edwards + Australian Art Orchestra

A celebration of the work of prolific First Nations songman and proud Mutti Mutti, Yorta Yorta and Nari Nari man Kutcha Edwards, alongside the Australian Art Orchestra (AAO)

Wuigada – Gagada (To Sing – Loud) celebrates the work of prolific First Nations songman and proud Mutti Mutti, Yorta Yorta and Nari Nari man Kutcha Edwards, alongside the Australian Art Orchestra (AAO).

Combining songwriting and activism for over 30 years, Edwards' experiences as a survivor of the Stolen Generations and proud Mutti Mutti heritage have shaped his diverse creative output, expressing joyous songs of country alongside the pain of history in his repertoire. Fronted by Edward's soulful vocals and gregarious nature, the collaborative reimagination of this work with the AAO creates space for experimentation by some of Australia's most creative jazz and improvisation artists

Deepening the tools of storytelling and song with bespoke visuals and lighting design, this special, one-night-only performance will stay with you long after leaving the Capitol Theatre.

Presented in partnership with Now or Never and the Australian Art Orchestra.
