Singing Workshop with Kutcha Edwards – Bairnsdale
Kutcha Edwards, proud Mutti Mutti, Yorta Yorta and Nari Nari man shares his songs and stories inspired by the history and struggle of his people. From the first song Kutcha ever wrote to a song written in his fathers’ language, Kutcha’s Songline has been inspired and influenced by the people and places he has travelled. From campfires to world stages, prisons to universities, Kutcha encourages the power of song to heal the spirit.
In this workshop Kutcha has chosen two songs to work with; the well known and anthem like song ‘Yil Lul’ and the spine tingling ‘We Sing’ which was recently recorded during Victoria’s 6 month lockdown and features on ‘Circling Time’, Kutcha’s latest album. ‘We Sing’ strives to provide connection across humanity and give a voice to Aboriginal people in Australia and black people around the world. ‘Yil Lull’, written by Joe Geia, is an uplifting and healing piece that is written in the spirit of reconciliation.
Both songs are ideal for community choirs who wish to learn and later sing as part of Kutcha’s show as well as for individual workshop participants. As participants learn each song, Kutcha simultaneously imparts the messages and history of each piece in a workshop of two-way conversation that paves the way for a group sing along.
