Glenn Barry + Jorge Rico: Sounds of Connection


14 October 2023

Immerse yourself in the sounds of the didgeridoo, clapsticks, flute, and guitar, as musicians Glenn Barry (Gamilaraay) and Jorge Rico evoke sounds of connection and harmony.

Guest Info
  • Glenn Barry is a Gamilaraay man who utilises the sound vibrations of the Yidaki (Didgeridoo) to bring gii/dhuwi (heart and soul) into the world of feeling. As part of his PhD research and practice in the area of spiritual wellbeing and healing of First Nations music, he loves the way the Yidaki aligns the spirit and grounds with the Earth, grounding our spirit like an Dhinawan (emu) while soaring like a Kaputhin (eagle). Reflecting the central significance of advancing authentic Australian identity, his goal is to bring a culturally interactive approach that allows the audience to feel included and actively embedded with the music and connect to their pure heart energy.

    Jorge Rico has been playing traditional musical instruments since he was a young teenager. Through his music, he seeks to evoke the mystical stories of his ancestors through the haunting sounds of the pan flutes and traditional bamboo flutes.
