Elder. Mentor. Campaigner. Storyteller. Singer. Songwriter.
For over 30 years, Archie Roach has been one of Australia’s most vital and celebrated voices, delivering heartbreakingly beautiful and honest music and campaigning tirelessly for the rights and opportunities of Indigenous Australians. For the first time, he joins the Sydney Symphony Orchestra for an unmissable concert experience.
Hear Archie Roach’s inspirational music like never before as he performs some of his best-known songs, with orchestra in collaboration with acclaimed Australian composer and pianist, Paul Grabowsky.
In ‘One Song’ Archie Roach sings up a Big Idea: that we have mapped our journey as human beings across the oceans and lands of the world through song, that we have sung the world into existence, into meaning, and that the common thread of song links back to an origin, to the birth song of all things.
