Adelaide Cabaret Festival Mission Songs


Reviving contemporary Australian Indigenous songs from 1900 to 1999, Mission Songs Project focuses on the Christian missions, state run settlements and native camps where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were relocated.

Beautifully sung and artfully articulated by this vocal quartet led by Jessie Lloyd, the day to day life of the mission period, from cultural identity to love and loss, is explored through secular songs that shed light on the almost forgotten stories of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders, families and communities.
