JAN 15-17 2021 SYDNEY FESTIVAL: Musical Microparks in Erskineville
Aunty Marlene Cummins and Bree van Reyk, perform an homage to the history of Indigenous blues singers of the 20th century. Accompanied by van Reyk on the vibraphone, Cummins sang three songs, two of which were made famous by Indigenous singer Georgia Lee in the 1950s and 60s. Down Under Blues and Yarra River Blues. The third piece, Pemulwuy, composed by Cummins, tells the story of the indigenous warrior of the same name. This piece was more personal and performed with fire.
