. . . Aboriginal singers with magnificent, rich voices . . .

Dharawal Soprano and composer Sonya Holowell, and Biripi opera tenor Elias Wilson, are established Australian Aboriginal singers with magnificent, rich voices, professional networks, and strong community connections. In September-October 2022 Holowell and Wilson performed the two lead roles in The Song Company’s successful tour of Songs from the Heart, its passionate musical response to the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

The production received rave reviews from Classikon’s Pepe Newton (see link below) and Sydney Arts Guide’s Lynne Lancaster.


The official Aboriginal Consultant for this production, which was highly commended by Gadigal Elder and Director of ANU’s Tjabal Centre Aunty Anne Martin, was Darug Aboriginal Elder Leanne Tobin. The Song Company’s live audio recording of the Cell Block Theatre production of Songs from the Heart includes 17 tracks composed by Elizabeth Sheppard and 6 tracks composed by Sonya Holowell. The tracks were mixed and mastered by Antony Pitts, assisted by ABC Producer Stephen Adams, and released internationally by 1equalmusic.com via Hyperion, a division of Universal Music, on April 7 2023.
