Glenn Barry + Jorge Rico: Yugal Gari Language Song
02 December 2023
Hear musicians Glenn Barry (Gamilaraay) and Jorge Rico perform a sonic response to Rainbow Serpent (Version) in language.
Using the sounds of the didgeridoo, clapsticks, flute, and guitar, Barry and Rico work to bring gii/dhuwi (heart and soul) to their performance.
We are committed to making the IMA accessible to people of all abilities, their families, and carers, as well as visitors of different ages and different backgrounds.
The gallery entrance is on the ground floor of the Judith Wright Arts Centre, on Berwick Street. There is wheelchair access and an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities also located on the ground floor, and we welcome guide and support dogs.

Glenn Barry is a Gamilaraay artist and musician who centres cultural learning in his work. As part of his PhD research into spiritual wellbeing and the healing power of First Nations music, Barry explores the way the vibrations of the yidaki (didgeridoo) aligns the spirit and grounds with the earth. Barry’s culturally interactive approach invites audiences to connect, and become embedded within his music and its energy.
Jorge Rico has been playing traditional musical instruments since he was a teenager. He seeks to evoke the mystical stories of his ancestors through the sounds of pan flutes and traditional bamboo flutes.
