charlie6pm doors, 8pm show

With video and photo archives on the big screen Charlie tells the story of how in his 60 years playing the didj, it has grown to become the iconic sound of Australia and a demonstration of how regardless of the political arguments over Constitutional Recognition, people are embracing Aboriginality as uniquely Australian.
The Story presents rare film and photos from Charlies work with Midnight Oil, Gondwanaland and drilling water bores and such to establish foundation services for the homelands of the founders of the Western Desert art movement cumulating with the discovery of the Pintupi nine in 1984.
There are profound insights into Aboriginality, the dynamics of kinship, sorry business and the journey of didj into places you would least expect.

Working with film maker Peter Strong, Charlie has put together an illuminating audio visual archive.

For the second half of the show Charlie is joined with Pasko on Keyboards for a live set.
