Phoenix Chaconne

Singing Mungo Lady

Empress Ki

Simon Martyn-Ellis, Laura Vaughan, Brooke Green, Catherine Upex, Daniel Yeadon, Josie Ryan, Fiona Ziegler

Brooke’s music creates new repertoire for the viol and draws attention to Australia’s suppressed or forgotten histories. Shamim and Batoh were refugee children struggling to live and obtain schooling on Nauru. Reza Barati and Hamed Shamshiripour were refugees in detention on Manus Island who died tragically far too young. Singing Mungo Lady tells the story of Mungo Lady’s long journey home. We’re making studio recordings of the popular Phoenix Chaconne and a setting of Aphra Behn’s poem: The Dream. Click to view the live concert videos.
