Saturday 26th February 2011 @ 7.30pm
Two free spirits of the OZ music scene unite for a very special concert, launching their new CD Desert Stars Dancing.

Experience the pulsating rhythms, soaring melodies and lush harmonies of the guitar and didgeridoo as the ethereal sounds of these timeless instruments dance to create a soundscape that knows no boundaries.

William Barton, one of Australia’s most celebrated didgeridoo players, and star of the 2008 Olympic opening ceremony, is a powerful advocate of the virtuosic potential of his instrument and the richness of his Australian Culture. Anthony Garcia fuses together a wide range of styles from the ancient to the contemporary, from the experimental music scene in New York to early music with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra Garcia continues to explore the diversity of his instrument.

Join these unique artists for what will be an inspiring musical journey!
