Mission Songs Project by Jessie Lloyd

Mission Songs Project by Jessie Lloyd

"Imagine living in a culture where the forced removal of family members was so common you could write a song about the heartbreak of it and that song is — beautiful, mournful, haunting..." - The Australian

Mission Songs Project looks to explore the day to day life of the mission days, from cultural identity to love and loss. These unique songs consist of almost forgotten stories that can now shed light into the history of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait elders, families and communities.

Mission Songs Project faithfully explores the musical journey of Indigenous Australian music as Jessie Lloyd connects the traditional with contemporary, revealing the continuation of cultural practice and song traditions into the 21st Century.

Mission Songs Project is produced by Performing Lines and supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Indigenous Languages and Arts program. 

Please call the Box Office on 4961 9777 to advise if you are a wheelchair user, have a Companion Card or if you have any other access requirements before completing your booking.
