Kutcha Edwards has been prolifically combining activism and songwriting since 1991. It is his experiences as a member of the Stolen Generations and his proud Mutti Mutti heritage that has shaped his diverse creative output in groups like Blackfire and Black Arm Band. At the same time he’s been able to forge a successful solo career combining the blues with traditional songs of people and Country. Kutcha regards himself as a songman, not simply a songwriter. He draws on a profound sense of all those who have gone before him on this land, along with his own life experiences, to help his audiences reconnect with their culture and promote cultural understanding.
Robbie Bundle is a singer-songwriter and musician who has been writing and performing music for more than 35 years. He has performed with artists such as David Gulpilil, Dave Arden, Bart Willoughby, Archie Roach and many others. Also a filmmaker, MC and a musical historian of the Songlines, Robbie’s latest album Universal Ark is a beautiful showcase of a songwriter at his best.
Presented as part of Wominjeka Festival 2017.
