Modern-day storyteller and guitarist Robert K. Champion gives the past and present a voice, shedding light on the nation’s truth through song and story in Manta Milmilpa (Sacred Ground).

Manta Milmilpa means Sacred Ground in Pitjantjatjara and refers to the sacredness of the land where the dead are buried.

Robert enthrals audiences with his warmth, poignancy, and humour, even on confronting and sombre subjects, and this moving performance connects on a fundamentally human level.

For Manta Milmilpa, Robert is joined on stage by an ensemble cast of the finest First Nations musicians from across Australia including Amos Roach, Allara, Nancy Bates, Ashley Turner, Joel Champion and Phoebe Elsworth.

Originally from the far west coast, Robert returns home for exclusive performances in Ceduna, Port Lincoln and Whyalla.

Presented by Robert K. Champion Music and Eugenia Flynn in partnership with Country Arts SA. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

Suitable Ages 15+
