The 2009 Queensland Music Festival will launch spectacularly into life with the largest concert event to be performed on Thursday Island, webcast live to a big screen in the centre of Brisbane.
Since the stunning national response to murundak in 2006, The Black Arm Band is increasingly sought after on the international stage. Uplifting and confronting, its music renders an intimate portrait of contemporary Indigenous life.
Their second show, Hidden Republic celebrates the dazzling talent of this country’s Indigenous musicians and the undiminished spirit of Aboriginal Australia in songs of hope and identity that reach out to all.
Twenty-five of Australia’s leading singers, songwriters, musicians and performers will be backed by thirty-three members of the Queensland Youth Symphony to create an exhilarating concert in the heart of the Torres Strait.
This free landmark event will be webcast live to Brisbane Square, located at the top of Queen Street Mall.
