In an Australian first, the Darwin Symphony Orchestra will head to a remote Indigenous community to collaborate with remote First Nations artists singing traditional songs at the famous Barunga Festival from Friday, 11 June to Sunday, 13 June. The orchestra will join with Manuel Dhurrkay (Saltwater Band), Don Nunggarlu (Mambali), The Djari Project (Guwanbal Gurruwiwi and Netanela Mizrahi) and Maningrida’s Ripple Effect in a special collaborative performance — the first time a Western orchestra has collaborated on-country with an all-female First Nations act.
