In the Utzon Room

Contemporary Music

An evening of music, culture and connection with the Briscoe Sisters and daughters from Kuku Yalanji country (The Daintree Region of Far North Queensland).

Moderated by Jess Beck (Luritja Nation)

Inspiring the next generation of Kaku Yalanji artists

Join us in honouring the Briscoe Sisters in this intimate event moderated by Jess Beck. The sisters’ journey as performers began as an award-winning folk infused group performing under the name Briscoe Sisters. Now, they have their own successful solo careers as artists, singers and songwriters. The sisters will be joined onstage by the next generation of artists -  Deline's daughters Merindi and JadeAmali, Naurita's daughters Kiara and Shennaye, and Merindi's daughter Felicity.

This event will be a chance to hear how these women share stories through diverse cultural and creative practices, and are paving the way for Kuku Yalanji women. Don’t miss this special evening of captivating conversation and soulful performance.

Presented by Sydney Opera House
