Frank Yamma In Concert At the Iconic Paragon.

Concert + 3 Course Gourmet Dinner + a Champagne Cocktail + Tea/coffee, Biscotti & Chocolates!
Fri 20th November 2015

Frank Yamma is the voice of Australia’s Central Desert striking a chord in hearts all over the world.
He is regarded as one of Australia’s most significant Indigenous songwriters with an ability to cross cultural and musical boundaries.

Frank’s rich and deeply evocative voice, mighty songs and exceptional guitar skills, combined with his honest tales of alcohol abuse, cultural degradation and stories of his country, are spine tingling.
When he sings, you listen and travel with him. An initiated Pitjantjatjara man, Frank sings in his native language and English. A love song sung in Pitjantjatjara will make your heart sing in whatever language you speak.

His compelling album ‘Uncle’ (2014) shows the continuity of a musician that is hitting his peak with grace and conviction and is a follow up album to the critically acclaimed ‘Countryman’ (2010). ‘Countryman’ re-launched Frank’s career following a ten-year hiatus, gaining international attention, sparking extensive national and international touring.

Frank’s touring highlights include three tours to Europe since 2011, a 2014 summer tour setting hearts on fire across Canada at Calgary, Vancouver and Winnipeg folk festivals, where he shared the stage with Buffy Saint Marie and The Mekons, as well as performing a coveted spot opening for Joan Baez. Frank has performed at various Australian festivals including the 2015 Blue Mountains Music Festival where he performed with fellow musician David Bridie.

Come and see why Frank Yamma is the man everybody’s talking about in the global world music scene, performing songs from both of his acclaimed albums.

“The voice grabs you first, a soulful shout of pain and yearning to connect and remember. But it’s the voice, relating hard tales with honesty and emotion that makes this a raw, stripped-back classic.” – The Independent UK

“the songs… resonate with grace and power, whilst Yamma’s sense of rhythm and timing in his guitar playing is tinged with the ghosts of old time Delta bluesmen like Lead Belly and Lightnin’ Hopkins…” – Buzz Magazine UK

“… one of Australia’s most sought after indigenous artists. Yamma’s heartfelt set of husky, beautiful songs hit the AWME crowd like a sucker punch…” – Songlines /BBC3 (5 Star Review)

“Frank Yamma … received a standing ovation from a packed house.” – Rhythms Magazine
