Yulugi + Jeremy Rose Quartet | Double Bill
28 October 2020 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm AEDT
Chasing Stars To The Mother Tree is the debut release from Yulugi, a fresh collaboration between Gamilaroi and Wakka Wakka man Gumaroy Newman and British-Australian composer Keyna Wilkins launching on Wednesday 28 October at LazyBones Lounge.
The album is based on the Gamilaroi star-lore myth that Berriberri set out in pursuit of the Miai-miai and cornered them in a mother tree where they were transformed into yellow and white cockatoos. Newman and Wilkins will take you on a journey into the heart of Australia, with dream-like sequences alongside landscape depictions, animal mimicry and echoes of tribal lores, drawing on a myriad of musical influences, to create a unique and authentic soundscape of Australia.
“The end result wasn’t just cross-cultural, but also cross-artform… an immersive, new contemporary Australian art music.” Cultural Omnivore
The launch double bill will also feature the Jeremy Rose Quartet, with Jeremy Rose, tenor saxophone, Steve Barry, piano; Noel Mason, bass; and Alex Hirlian, drums.
