Show and album launch, sharing Kutcha’s life in song, stories and images.
An extraordinary insight into Kutcha's life through music and reminiscence. A 3 dimensional experience of very compelling and generous nature giving hope and positive outlook into the future if only we could listen to each other! It was pretty stunning to hear his personal story and hear about his journey. For all that he is a man of compassion and forgiveness—such a beautiful voice!
Audience & Marketing Notes
- Show and CD launch from Kutcha Edwards who say, “I’m there to tell my truths and my family’s and my people’s truth of what has transpired on this country.” Songs, music, stories, pictures, colour and humour combine to give a deeply moving and personal account of just that.
- Kutcha Edwards did not choose to be a musician. Kutcha says the choice to pursue his Songline wasn’t his. “I think the music seeks you out,” he says
- * Born of the Mutti Mutti people on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, Kutcha sees music as a responsibility he has been given by his ancestors to not only entertain, but to educate. Or as he calls it, to “drop a pebble in an imaginary pond and make that ripple”.
- Kutcha became one of the Stolen Generations at just 18 months of age, when he and 5 of his 12 siblings were taken from his parents. Healing, culture and unity are recurring themes in Kutcha’s Songline, delivered in a style that traverses blues, gospel, rock and country. Yet always at its core is that voice – deep, soulful and timeless, rising and falling with the breaths and dreaming of generations. Music has been the path to healing for Kutcha for more than 25 years.
- The show is highly suitable as a matinee session for school groups as well as general audiences. Also, for many years Kutcha has been delivering Cultural Immersion Workshops to a diverse range of entities including the staff of schools & universities, businesses, community organisations, government departments both State & Local and social workers. Kutcha poses some curly questions in a workshop designed to draw from the participants the knowledge of Aboriginal Australia they currently possess and enhance that, with some reality checks, along the way. Through stories, songs & conversation he explores, defines & imparts understanding of what it is to be an Indigenous person in Australia today.
