ARCHIE ROACH WITH PAUL GRABOWSKY

Saturday 17 November 2018  |  7:30PM

Since the release of his debut solo album Charcoal Lane in 1990, Archie Roach has been one of Australia’s most enduring indigenous artists and storytellers. Forcibly removed from his family at the age of three under the Australian Government’s brutal assimilation policy, his turbulent childhood found artistic expression in the ARIA award-winning song ‘Took the Children Away’, for which he also received an international Human Rights Achievement Award.

Inherent in his music are the struggles of all indigenous Australians and the story of a nation. Remarkably, his music contains no trace of bitterness or animosity: it quietly disarms, transcending race, religion, gender and ideology to find grace in our shared humanity.
