Music Box: ‘Songs of home’

The vivid sounds and complex dark stories of early colonial Australia by The Matildas

The Matildas, made up of musicians from the colonised land now known as Australia, with special guests from the US and UK, explore the music from a complex and turbulent period in Australia’s history. In this multi-genre performance, the forgotten sounds of folk songs, ballads, fantastical tales, and lively dances brought by Europeans to Australia around the turn of the 19th century are brought to life by musicians specialising in historical performance styles. These are intertwined with indigenous and colonial stories, poems, and new Australian music. Join us as we explore the rich, quirky, and often dark musical storylines that have shaped the complex country and peoples of Australia.
