Indigenous Australian musician Jessie Lloyd has been researching and reviving old mission songs through consultation with senior Indigenous songmen and songwomen since 2016.
Jessie’s grandfather Albie Geia was a leader in the 1957 Palm Island Strike, which, like the events in Brixton, was labelled a “riot”, leading to his imprisonment.
We will explore the commonalities of experience between Indigenous Australians and Black Britons using music. Join Jessie to jam or listen – bring an instrument and enjoy!
