Yirrmal is a new generation Indigenous Australian artist from North-East Arnhem Land. Áine Tyrrell is a new generation traditional Irish singer from the West Coast of Ireland.
Both these artists have infiltrated the hearts and minds of music lovers around Australia with their unique and powerful voices and enthralling stories, which have grown from traditional roots into truly global contemporary sounds. Yirrmal’s sound comes from living in two worlds, learning in two worlds, carrying a message, a sharing of culture. He explores new horizons with sound, mixing western styles with traditional song.
Áine’s music carries ache, honesty, and elated melodies of her traditional roots, garnishing rhythms which a thousand years of ancestry have slammed foot to floorboards in both celebration and protest. These two met on stage a year ago and stunned a room into silence. They have since both travelled and toured with the who’s-who of Australian Music and join forces again at the Gasometer for an amazing once-off evening of music on Saturday 4th June. Their journeys are ones you’d be advised to join. Very Special Guests: Liz Frencham and Robbie Melville to open the night.
