Wata: a Gathering for Manikay Performers, Improvising Soloists and Orchestra is a powerful new collaboration between MSO’s 2021 Composer in Residence, Paul Grabowsky AO, David Yipininy Wilfred, and his brother Daniel Ngukurr Boy Wilfred, which celebrates the ceremonial song cycles of the Wagilak people of northeastern Arnhem Land.

Rwandese-British Composer, Artist, Broadcaster Stéphanie Kabanyana Kanyandekwe hosts Grabowsky, the Wilfred brothers and members of the Australian Art Orchestra as they explore – through story, conversation and song – the culture, country and music of Wata.
