In collaboration with the 2017 Yirramboi First Nations Festival, Arts Centre Melbourne presents two of the most crucial voices to represent our Aboriginal community.

Emma Donovan & The Putbacks will pay tribute to pioneering singer/songwriter Ruby Hunter and Archie Roach brings his new album Let Love Rule to the stage a night later.
 
Donovan is a soul and funk troubadour who cites Hunter as a strong musical influence. In commemoration, Donovan alongside her rhythm combo The Putbacks will perform tracks from Hunter's groundbreaking 1994 debut album Thoughts Within.
 
Roach has been labelled 'the definitive voice of Indigenous Australia'. He'll be joined by members of the award-winning Short Black Opera and Dhungala Children's Choir for what proves to be a fantastic show.

Emma Donovan & The Putbacks perform at the Arts Centre on Friday May 12 with Archie Roach arriving on Saturday May 13.
