Didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton and powerhouse violinist Véronique Serret blend traditional songlines and modern storytelling in a collaboration featuring the poetry of William’s mother Aunty Delmae Barton – a message of peace and love carried by the eagle spirit.

On the back of their sold out shows at Sydney Festival, Canberra and Darwin, Barton and Serret welcome you to experience their unique, meditative soundworld, inspired by the Australian landscape and the power of connection to place. Serret’s violins and Barton’s prodigious didgeridoo and guitar come together with powerful, soaring vocals and the ethereal loops and electronic effects, in a distinctive evocation of our uniquely Australian landscape.


MORE INFO

HEARTLAND began life as a seven-minute commission for the 2019 Canberra International Music Festival, and since then has grown organically into an extraordinary hour-long reimagined ‘chamber oratorio’ exploration of Country, landscape, culture, language and the nature of identity featuring Barton and Serret’s much loved works Kalkani (commissioned by ABC), Didge Fusion and of course Heartland. We’ve all been on a journey in the last two years – let Heartland’s blend of traditional songlines and contemporary storytelling take you on a meditative musical journey, leaving you reinvigorated and uplifted.
