With a proud history in the Australian music industry, Aboriginal singer-songwriter Dave Arden has toured the globe with Koori Youth Band, Bart Willoughby and Mixed Relations Band, as well as Archie Roach, the late Ruby Hunter and as a featured Artist and Co-music director for the legendary Black Arm Band.
He showcases his own brand of folk and rock with other influences from his rich musical past. With his upcoming album nearing completion, the Dave Arden Gunditjmara/Kokatha, Songman & Storyteller concerts will feature Dave’s songs, accompanied with stories, moving imagery, photographs and spoken word. They tell of his family, community and the cultural backgrounds of his two worlds. His showcases will delve deeply into his Aboriginal ancestry, spiritual culture, and respect. He will take the audience on a journey of reconciliation and healing.
