Emma Donovan: Songs, Stories and Soul from Family and Country

July 6 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$40

Songs, Stories and Soul from Family and Country showcases the talent and new work of celebrated, ARIA-nominated, award-winning Indigenous singer and songwriter Emma Donovan.

This intimate performance includes her trademark soul/country songs and new music recorded in Gumbaynggirr and Noongar languages. Emma proudly is one of the First Nations artists, spearheading efforts to put traditional languages on the music map. She will also share stories, providing her audiences with an understanding of Country and community.

“I am very proud to introduce new words and share languages with audiences and fans. It’s so important to preserve this part of our history, family and country. For me to write my solo album, I needed to go back into my own family musical archives to rediscover the country music I was raised on and that I performed. My solo work will be richly influenced by my family and memories of touring with The Donovan’s performing country and gospel music. My family’s musical history is known but not yet world renowned. This project will shine a light on Indigenous music culture, sharing stories and preserving language in song. I want to share my story with Australia and the world, and I want audiences to hear my songs and languages to enhance their knowledge of our expansive history of this country.” – Emma Donovan

This performance is part of the Albany Entertainment Centre’s NAIDOC performances.
