Connecting songs across oceans, the Homelands Tour follows the night sky, journeying along plains, down rivers and across oceans to bring young and established First Nations artists from Australia and Canada together on their Homelands and out onto stages at festivals around the world. Featuring a genre-fused performance led by First Nations artists Glenn Skuthorpe (AUS) and Michel Bruyere (CAN), with local and international guest artists Shakti Hayes, Monica Karo, Pirritu Brett Lee, Kee’ahn, Marbee Williams and Maurial Spearim.

‘The stage glows from within. Two beautiful and ancient cultures coming together into the ‘Bora’ (ceremonial circle), lit by the ancient warmth of the ‘Ishkode’ (fire within), to connect through songs across oceans.’
