On Wednesday I was visiting a gallery in the country and stopped in for coffee on the way back.
Every ready with my camera I filmed this amazing performance of two people I did not know at the time. Just my intuition told me it was something very special!
William Barton and his mother….Aunty Delmae Barton are both internationally acclaimed performers and they just happened to be visiting this place…… “Bush Tucker” which has a big barn at the rear where people perform. They are also here on the Gold Coast because they are being engaged for the Commonwealth Games in 2018.
Delmae wrote the poem she read here on Tuesday so this is a world exclusive performance.
Remember the Australian Aboriginal People have lived here continually for more than 60,000 years long before many/most/all civilizations.
Therefore the didgeridoo reflects that very ancient, primitive and primordial sound.
