The Narlis will be joined at the Broome concert at Sun Pictures by four notable musicians from Broome and Warmun. Naomi Pigram (guitar/vocals), Gabriel Nodea (spoken word), Susie Quicke (guitar/vocals) and Paul Boon (didgeridoo) will showcase their culture, context and content in collaboration with the Narlis.
Warmun artist, musician and cultural leader. ‘I paint what I dream. I do contemporary painting about the Dreaming and what I dream, in accordance with the Dreamtime connection and history of my Mother’s people, Gija people.’ Gabriel, will tell a dreamtime story to a painting of his, accompanied by music from the Narli’s.
Naomi Pigram is a saltwater child and song writing prodigy. Her song writing is confronting, gritty: laced with the coal-face reality of life in a western Kimberley town. The Narlis (including Stephen Pigram) will join with Naomi to perform some of her recent songs.
Singer/songwriter Susie Quicke has been performing since 1994. Originally from the tall timbers of the South West she now lives with open skies and endless horizons of the Kimberley, inspired by a lifestyle close to the environment. Susie will sing one of her beautiful original songs of life in the Kimberley.
Broome based self-taught didgeridoo performer. Paul has collaborated with Tura since the Narlis started touring the Kimberley and will perform a didgeridoo duo with Mark Atkins. Paul produces and performs for The Nomad Two Worlds Project.
Catch the collaboration at the world’s longest-running outdoor cinema, Sun Pictures, Broome, at 7:30pm on Thursday the 30th of August.
