Sydney Symphony Presents

Spinifex Gum combines the beauty of a choir of young Indigenous female singers from Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait with contemporary songwriting that speaks to issues of our time.

This is a unique collaboration between Marliya of Gondwana Choirs and Felix Riebl and Ollie McGill of The Cat Empire. In this breathtaking concert, their unique blend of choral music, contemporary song and dance combine with the power of the Sydney Symphony in a performance like you’ve never seen before.

High energy, high impact, and hauntingly beautiful, this fearless music lays bare the injustices faced by Indigenous Australians and shines a light on the strength of those who fight for their community.

“...entertaining...compelling, and the music carries its own cosmic energy.” (Sydney Morning Herald)
