This October, Melbourne and Sydney will be able to witness the live spectacle that is Archie Roach as he announces two very special shows. The shows will follow the release of his latest record, Let Love Rule, due out on 23rd September. From that LP, Archie Roach has just released a single titled “It’s Not Too Late”.
To further make this a truly special experience, Archie Roach will invite the Dhungala Children’s Choir to join him on stage. The choir is a program aimed at empowering Indigenous schoolchildren in years 4, 5 and 6 through singing, song writing, visual arts and storytelling.
Archie will be accompanied at these shows by another one of Australia’s emerging Indigenous singer-songwriters, Corey Theatre. Drawing inspiration from his roots, Corey revives Aboriginal language in his songs, with his debut single “Ngathuk Ngalina sung in the Gunditj-Mara language and featuring Archie Roach himself.
