Didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton will present his first full-length solo orchestral commission, Apii Thatini Mu Murtu, which translates as “To sing and carry a coolamon on country together”, as a world premiere with Queensland Symphony Orchestra later this month. The orchestral work is a lullaby for which he will play didgeridoo, guitar and sing in his Kalkadunga tongue.

He recently sat down with Limelight Magazine to discuss this and other upcoming projects. Read the conversation HERE
