Lamine Sonko + Pirritu

August 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Composer, director and multi-instrumentalist Lamine Sonko joins Ngiyampaa singer-songwriter Pirritu for an intimate double-bill performance that traverses embodied knowledge, tradition and contemporary culture.
Lamine Sonko (Afropublic Opinion Orchestra, The African Intelligence) creates multi-artform experiences inspired by his background as a guewel (cultural role) of the Sing Sing clan and Korings of Kaabu, and a member of Senegal’s Serer, Wolof and Mandinko communities.

“It is not only hearing the words and understanding the stories that is crucial, but the vibrations and soul felt in the music are also uplifting”– Sydney Morning Herald

Pirritu (meaning ‘Brett’ in Ngiyampaa language) was adopted by a non-Aboriginal couple as a newborn baby and raised to be proud of his Aboriginality, to follow his cultural journey and to connect back to family, culture and language – a journey he began when he was 14 years old. Two things drive his continual thirst to connect to his people, country, language and culture – his daughter and his passion for music.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch two innovative musicians and storytellers on stage for one night only.
