Xavier Rudd joins Boomerang Festival - October 4 - 6, Byron Bay

Xavier Rudd

Join Dr. Dijiniyini Gondarra OAM, Journalist Jeff McMullen and the acclaimed Xavier Rudd on Saturday October 5 at Boomerang Festival, as they marry uplifting music with thought provoking dialogue through songs, stories and visuals of the award wining film Our Generation.  

Xavier Rudd has re-introduced a lot of Australians to the sounds and stories of Australia’s first people, while introducing the rest of the world to an entirely new sound altogether. His new album Spirit Bird is a defining moment in the evolution of one of Australia’s most important artists. From Arnhem Land to the Northern Rivers he comes with an array of guitars, didgeridoos, stomp boxes, percussion and dialogue.

Not only willXavier be sharing some of his much loved songs with us, he will join Dr.Gondarra OAM(from North East Arnhem land), in conversation withJeff McMullendiscussingongoing racism and oppression against Aboriginal people with a deep current of hope that things can change with understanding and togetherness. 

This is the spirit of reconciliation this discussion will open our eyes to a life on Elcho Island Hidden from the eyes of the world. 

So whether you are one of the many avid Xavier fans or just are a little curious, don’t miss his unmistakeable rhythm with some words from the heart.

“We are thrilled and personally proud to be able to provide this unique meeting of minds as part of a wonderful new festival”, says Rhoda Roberts, Boomerang Festival Director.
