Event Details

Led by vocalists Daniel Wilfred and Sunny Kim, Hand to Earth has quickly developed an international reputation as one of Australia’s most distinctive contemporary ensembles. Daniel is a keeper of Yolngu Manikay, indigenous songs from North East Arnhem Land that can be traced back more than 40,000 years, making them the world’s oldest continuously practised music tradition. Sunny moves between English and Korean, intoning gestures that invoke the rawest of elemental forces. Together they sing of the stars, of fire, and of the cooling rain, while the drone of David Wilfred’s didgeridoo and atmospheres created by trumpeter/sound artist Peter Knight, clarinetist Aviva Endean, and violinist Amalia Umeda draw on the minimalism of Brian Eno and Jon Hassell to create a bed for these beautifully contrasting voices.

Songlines UK’s 5-star review of the unprecedented ensemble’s debut release raved that “while many contemporary projects strive to combine ancient and modern influences, this innovative and ethereal musical alliance actually achieves that lofty goal – with old cultural ground being respected, while new artistic ground is broken. Hand to Earth is a truly exquisite album.”

The Event is Pay-What-You-Can at the door.
