UCLA Live Presents

Sing Sing

Created by multi-award-winning musician David Bridie from the Australian band Not Drowning Waving, Sing Sing – a Papua New Guinea expression for “large musical gathering” – brings together some of the most important indigenous artists from the Oceania region around Australia for a rousing celebration of traditional and contemporary music and dance. From the highlands of West Papua and the forests and coral atolls of Papua New Guinea to the vast deserts of Australia, the region boasts a plethora of vibrant musical and cultural traditions that are rarely experienced outside their native lands. Sing Sing offers a unique journey through the physical and cultural landscape of urban and grass roots village life in these areas with a thrilling visual show and an exhilarating mix of traditional and contemporary sounds—from the haunting melodies of bamboo flutes to the upbeat rhythms of a string band.
