Kicking off the Resonate - Bowery Online Stage Series and as part of NAIDOC Week (8-15 November), Ngiyampaa man and First Nations singer-songwriter Pirritu aka Brett Lee brings you a mix of indie, pop and roots. Known for his honesty and melodic storytelling, his songs reflect his personal journey and stories of sadness, love and hope.
Pirritu (meaning ‘Brett’ in Ngiyampaa Language) was adopted by a non-Aboriginal couple as a newborn baby and raised to be proud of his Aboriginality, to follow his cultural journey and to connect back to family, culture and language - a journey he began when he was 14 years old. Two things drive his continual thirst to connect to his people, country, language and culture - his daughter and his passion for music.
Resonate - Bowery Online Stage Series is a curated program of online concerts filmed at the Bowery Theatre showcasing musicians, performers and artists of diverse backgrounds. Resonate invites audiences to discover new voices, be inspired by songs, and find connection through sound.
