Jandamarra – Sing for the Country is a new piece for massed voices and orchestra that tells the story of a young Bunuba Aboriginal man from the Kimberley in Western Australia, who was a warrior and courageous leader for his people. He grew up at the time when white pastoralists were first laying claim to Bunuba country. It was the frontier; a time of violence and great upheaval. He was only in his mid twenties when he was gunned down, but in his short life he created a legacy that will never be forgotten.

Jandamarra’s extraordinary position—poised between the white and black worlds—makes him a compelling tragic hero. And it makes this story one of the most dramatic of all the tales of the 19th Century conflict between Aboriginal people and white settlers.

This dramatic cantata written by librettist Steve Hawke and Conservatorium staff member Associate Professor Paul Stanhope will be performed by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Orchestra and Choirs in collaboration with the Bunuba people who own the story. It includes narrative and danced elements while threading traditional song into the musical fabric. The Conservatorium partners with Sydney Children’s Choir, VOX, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, this compelling piece will be conducted by Conservatorium alumnus Elizabeth Scott and a landmark event held in the Sydney Town Hall.
