“Music is not what I do, it is who I am.
My songs may be contemporary but they are more than 40,000 years old.
They come through me from my ancestors and my people … and they tell our stories.”
Singer / songwriter and proud Mutti Mutti man, Kutcha Edwards perfroms music fusing his beautiful voice with soulful arrangements. Kutcha’s deep, rhythmic tones are that of a storyteller whose inispiring songs are passionately heartfelt, evoking an ancient connection to Aboriginal culture.
Kutcha can playfully engage with his audience while performing songs that impart his story, his Songline. Kutcha has independently produced four CDs, staged two theatre productions and received several prestigious awards including the 2016 Melbourne Prize for Music. Kutcha’s magnificent singing, poignancy and humour makes for an unforgettable encounter with one of Australia’s indigenous icons and celebrated singer/songwriters.
As part of the recent This Place project run by the Darebin Council, Kutcha who has a long history with the local area, wrote a song titled ‘4ore Walls’ about the Thornbury Theatre.
Kutcha will be performing with his seven piece group live in the Velvet Room of the Thornbury Theatre on Friday 13th July, with special guests.
