Groove your way into Enlighten’s opening night at Beat the Drum, featuring some of Australia’s finest Indigenous musicians.

Following a night of astounding Indigenous dance at various Enlighten venues, Australian reggae pioneer and founding member of No Fixed Address and Mixed Relations, Bart Willoughby will take to the stage in the heart of the Parliamentary Triangle with his latest incarnation, The Bart Willoughby Band. Drawing on a formidable history of politically powerful music, The Bart Willoughby Band will perform unique Aboriginal rock-reggae beats with an impressive big band line-up including Selwyn Burns (Coloured Stone) and Airi Ingram, along with sublime harmonising of indigenous songstresses Deline Briscoe and Emma Donovan.
