Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Bunuba Cultural Enterprises present Jandamarra - Sing for the Country, the story of Jandamarra, a young Bunaba Aboriginal man from the Kimberley in Western Australia, who was a warrior and courageous leader for his people.

In collaboration with the Bunaba people, this performance brings to life the powerful story of Jandamarra, which is emblematic not only of past conflict between Aboriginal people and white settlers, but also of survival and connection to country.

Elizabeth Scott will conduct the Conservatorium Orchestra and Choirs, along with the Sydney Children's Choir, VOX, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, and actors, singers and dancers from the Bunuba nation in the Kimberley.
