This week is National Reconciliation Week in Australia. Take some time out to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander cultures and histories, this is important to help us grow as a nation. www.reconciliation.org.au

We are thrilled for our good friends ‘Apakatjah’ who have bought their desert sounds to the Campbelltown Arts Centre this week, taking residence at C-A-C writing songs for the follow-up to their highly acclaimed debut album ‘In-Between’. ‘Apakatjah' are Dion Forrester and Jonathan Lindsay-Tjapaltjarri Hermawan who weave together a reflection of their blended cultures and wide musical influences from Aboriginal desert reggae like Tjupi Band, old school metal like Iron Maiden and guitar master, Tommy Emmanuel.

Rock with the Culture of Indigenous Australia’ is a truly inspiring and magical workshop Apakatjah deliver for Rock and Roll Team Building. We are very honoured to have them on our team.
