Well we have some exciting news! Its official, Instruments For The Outback will be travelling to Arnhem Land for the first time ever! A small team of 5 has been invited to travel to Elcho Island to spend time in Gawa working with school students and aboriginal elders setting up a performance space. In addition to providing instruments and running music workshops for the week, our team will also be putting together a small recording studio. This will enable indigenous students and elders to record songs and stories in the local languages of Warramirri and Djambarpungu. We're really excited to be involved in preserving an ancient language and nurturing the young artists of Elcho Island!
