Taribelang Welcome Song
November 15, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm AEST$10
The world premiere of Robert McLellan’s Taribelang Welcome Song will be at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre bandabara on 15 November 2019.
When Robert first heard his Welcome Song recording for the bandabara concert, composed in New York and combined with strings from The Juilliard School, it was an emotional moment. It was a culmination of years of work to reclaim the Taribelang language and thoughts of the artist’s grandmother that really brought the significance of the piece home. The song was originally composed alongside Christie McLucas in 2018 as part of the Yuwarr Project, with assistance from the Central Queensland Language Centre and linguist Elisabeth Ford.
The bandabara concert, to be held at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on 15 November, will be the world premiere of seven new works by six composers, four of them from Bundaberg. Follow the event link for more information including how to book.
