‘Rekindled Systems’ is the unlikely collaboration between Yorta Yorta artist Allara and Ukrainian-Canadian artist Olenka Toroshenko. Their duo show employs skilful storytelling using a sweet tangle of double bass, looped tones, song, spoken word poetry, and dance to weave a multidisciplinary and multicultural narrative.

While cutting beets for borscht on Sviat Vechir (Ukrainian Christmas) in January 2020, the pair realised they are both descendants of people who survived genocides intended to annihilate their cultural identity. Allara and Olenka call upon the guidance of their Elders and ancestors with direct intent and deep kinship to navigate the troubling reality of the state of our current cultural paradigm and planet. ‘Rekindled Systems’ is a ballad for the healing of the earth an invitation to proceed with living a life of meaning and consequence through art and expression.

The tour will bring a high standard of First Nations music and cultural cross-pollination to regional communities across Victoria, engaging local artists along the way who are deeply connected to their community and country. Support artists Monica Jasmine Karo and Culture Evolves will be sharing their creative expressions of First Nations music, stories, and dance in a celebration of cultural identity, joined by songman and language revivalist Corey Theatre for a special Gunditjmara homeland show.
