Her voice resonates across the world, calling for reconciliation, justice and singing in languages considered sleeping. Multi-award-winning artist Shellie Morris visits the Sunshine Coast next week to perform at The Majestic Theatre in Pomona on 27 August.

With a packed year so far performing in Brazil, London and Malaysia as well as the communities of Yarrabah, Yirrkala and Larjamanu, Shellie is excited to share new music with the audience on the coast.

In the past four years, Shellie has been recognised for her work in more than 70 communities with a Music in Communities award from Music Australia, Deadly award, NIMA and Australian of the Year, NT.

The proud Wardaman and Yanyuwa woman sings of her connection to country, heartbreaks she has endured, politics and family life, singing in some of the 17 Aboriginal languages she has learnt through her work with so many communities.

Language preservation and revitalization is a passion that sees her write and create with children, adults and other artists from around the world. Shellie is joined by GuguYalanji song man Troy Brady who has been touring and gigging solidly since releasing his latest album, Western Sons.

The pair are formidable in their work in communities, with Troy in Cherbourg, Woorabinda, Hopevale, Yarrabah and the Brisbane region empowering youth throughout the year. The GuguYalanji and Birri Gubba man says through his music, he is “passing on the spear” to his two young boys.

“I’m putting in place those cultural teachings of language, song, dance, an intimate understanding of law, country, spiritual connectedness,” he says.

“It’s a cultural beacon for enticing bama/mob to re-engage with country, to put more emphasis on family, sitting with elders by a fire yarning on country and learning the benefits of natural medicines pertaining to those lands, as opposed to an itinerant destitute existence, challenging the notion of young men seeing incarceration as a modern day initiation is an issue I’ve been lobbying about for some time,” says Jungaji (Troy’s skin name).

The duo will be joined on stage by local Andrea Kirwin who weaves melodies and storytelling to create a rich tapestry, much like the way her Fijian grandmother used to weave pandanus mats in the village.

Andrea has performed all around the country in some of the smallest cafes and bars in country towns to big music festivals such as Woodford Folk Festival, The Dreaming, Palm Creek Folk Festival and WomAdelaide.
