“The artists visit to Ho Chi Minh City promises to bring a stronger understanding of Australian Indigenous arts and culture to the people of Vietnam,” Australian Consul General Graeme Swift said.
In addition to the performance at the Youth Cultural House, Jeremy Donovan and the five artists will participate in workshops with the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts University and the Choreographer College of Ho Chi Minh City. The Australian artists will work with Vietnamese students to enhance the cultural exchange between Australia and Vietnam and contribute to strengthening the friendship between the two countries.
Jeremy Donovan is a descendant of both the Gumbaynngirr and KuKu-Yalanji tribes and has been playing didgeridoo in both traditional and contemporary performances for over 10 years, according to the Australian Consulate General.
Indigenous Hip Hop Projects is a team of artists in elements of hip hop, media, entertainment and performing arts, who have been working extensively in Aboriginal communities around Australia since 2004, the Consulate General says.
