Pirritu The Finale
(AEST, UTC+10) (AEST, UTC+10)
Pirritu's new album, ‘Fire When The Sun Goes Down’, presents classic folk storytelling elements connecting the songman's personal journey of self-discovery to country and culture. A true folk ensemble brings an immersive sound that underscores the strong visual narrative offered through Pirritu's songs. His songlines are informed by the work outside of music that Pirritu undertakes, which is contributing to preserving the ancient language of his people and gaining deeper understanding of their stories and traditions.
In his second full-length release, Pirritu builds on his debut album with songs of introspection and self-love presented through the lens of what he holds important in life: connections, understanding of one’s culture, and, acceptance. “Fire When The Sun Goes Down” is a warm embrace generously extended from the songwriter to his listeners in an effort to guide them through to a destination of empathy, of collective compassion. The sophomore album sees Pirritu come further into himself as a storyteller and healer through song, an ancient tradition that he proudly accepts the role of.
Join us on Saturday, 29 April at the Wesley Anne to experience the narrative vibrancy of Pirritu's full folk band. Supported on the night by songstress Maylene Yinarr and The Deans of Soul.
