Casula Powerhouse in association with Sydney Festival present TÌNH KHÚC TỪ QUÊ HƯƠNG/ Songs From Home

ALL TICKETS: $35

ALL AGES EVENT

Dang Lan is a multi-instrumentalist and performer of Vietnamese popular and folk music. Toby Martin is a rock musician and songwriter, best known as the singer in Youth Group.

Lan and Toby met while working on Songs From Northam Avenue(Utp) five years ago and have been friends and musical collaborators ever since. This concert premieres new songs that Lan and Toby have written together – songs about journeys to and from Australia, and complicated feelings about home, longing and displacement – as well as traditional Vietnamese songs given a new twist.

These songs represent a meeting point between Lan and Toby’s two musical traditions. They are local Sydney and western Sydney songs and stories, but they are also global ones.

This concert premieres new songs that Dang Lan and Toby Martin have written together – songs about journeys to and from Australia, and complicated feelings about home, longing and displacement – as well as traditional Vietnamese songs given a new twist.

Dang Lan and Toby Martin will be joined by guest musicians including Bree van Reyk and Matthew Steffen in the concert.

This work was commissioned by Utp.
