Mission Songs
Friday, July 12, 2019
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Presented by Jessie Lloyd, Mission Songs Project is performed as a quartet with a range of Indigenous performers from around Australia. Profoundly moving, Mission Songs Project reveals what daily was like for Indigenous Australians on Christian missions and state-run settlements.

Searching for the family songs that were sung around the kitchen table, Jessie Lloyd explores the day to day life on the missions, settlements and reserves through music. From cultural identity to love and loss, these rare songs consist of almost forgotten stories that can now shed light into the history of our Indigenous elders, families and communities.

Mission Songs Project faithfully explores the musical journey of Indigenous Australian music as the Mission Songs Quartet connects the traditional with contemporary, revealing the continuation of cultural practice and song traditions into the 21st Century.
