Kakadu Man

    Bill ‘Kakadu Man’ Neidjie, elder of the Gagudju clan, was responsible for opening his native territory to the general public, inviting Australians and international guests to enjoy the natural beauty of the Kakadu National Park, with its sacred ancient rock art sites. To ensure that the history and philosophy of his people were not forgotten, Neidjie broke taboos by publishing some of his people’s traditional stories in two books of poetry. With permission from the poet’s family, the Australian Chamber Choir has commissioned Tom Henry to set extracts from Neidjie’s poems to music. The poems speak of a place where the spiritual world meets the physical. Some would say that all art comes from such a place. Other works on the program have been chosen for their resonance with this theme.
    The ACC will tour a Kakadu Man program with 16 concerts in Germany, Denmark and Switzerland during June and July, 2015.
