SONGLINES FOR A NEW WORLD
Within the animist belief system of Indigenous Australians, a songline is also called dreaming track. It is a where paths across the land (or sometimes the sky), which mark the route followed by localized "creator-beings" during the Dreamtime.
Directed by Australian, New York based Festival Director Xenia Hanusiak, Songlines for a New World celebrates pioneering Australian women in music who draw from two very different worlds - making music and telling stories about contemporary life with an ageless perspective. The artists in Songlines for a New World are agents of change – they are the provocateurs and the consciousness of their generation who interject the artistic world with wit, humor, humility, gravitas and critique.
Through performances and storytelling pioneering first nation indigenous and Australian women present their stories with their virtuosic gifts across the globe
