The Emerald Phoenix CD is now released!
There are a small number of tickets available to The Emerald CD Launch.
Thank you to our generous donors who contributed towards costs for The Emerald Phoenix CD. The Emerald Phoenix CD is music by Brooke Green performed by Josie and The Emeralds. Inspired by the phoenix who rises from the ashes, there is a theme of transformation: of hope after sorrow, of triumph over adversity.
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.
