Celebrate Black History Month
Black History Month commenced in 2008, after consultations with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community groups indicating strong support for a cultural program to enable all communities to better understand the cultures of these peoples.
It is held in July each year – featuring history, heritage and cultures which acknowledges and celebrates First Australians' achievements.
This year, one of the events is WhichWay Uncle, to acknowledge and celebrate the roles of the songmen and uncles in traditional and contemporary Australian Indigenous cultures.
Getano Bann, Joe Geia and Troy Brady combine some 100 years of storytelling and songwriting in an "inspirational show of musical collaboration and cultural wisdom".
Getano Bann, raised in Mackay North Queensland is a singer, songwriter, storyteller and music therapist. Joe Geia is a composer, guitarist, singer and didgeridoo player who is considered to be one of the most influential figures in Indigenous music. Troy Brady is a GuguYalanji/Birri Gubba man known for producing soulful sounds with captivating lyrics.
WhichWay Uncle is presented by Brisbane City Council to celebrate Black History Month and will be held in the Queensland Multicultural Centre, 102 Main St Kangaroo Point on July 21st and 22nd, from 6.30 pm to 8 pm. The event is FREE, but bookings are essential.
