Tura New Music announces The Sonus2 Tour featuring Kimberley singer-songwriters Olive Knight and Stephen Pigram with a cross-cultural ensemble of instrumentalists, Iranian percussionist Esfandiar Shahmir, cellist Tristen Parr and flautist Tos Mahoney. The touring artists are renowned in their own right and now come together for the first time to present a wealth of original, new music as well as captivating collaborations with local artists.
Sonus2 is a meeting of cultural forces, ancient and contemporary, through songs of outback Australia and newly commissioned music for the tour. New songs, new works, and new arrangements feature in a program reflecting the Kimberley communities and landscape travelled through. Tura presents this cross-cultural journey weaving a rich tapestry of uniquely Australian music, celebrating the sounds of the Kimberley.
This Tour, as with all of Tura’s award-winning Regional Programs, has come about from 19 years of community engagement and deep relationship building.
Tura acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land and community. We pay our respect to them and their cultures, and to their Elders past, present, and emerging.
