Ziggy Ramo performed his debut album Black Thoughts in its entirety on Saturday night. It was a special, powerful performance in the Sydney Opera House involving a ten-piece band and audio visuals from Kambarni.
The show, which is performed in a super eery, empty Opera House was livestreamed on Saturday night, and is now available on demand.
The audio visuals lend a lot to the performance. They offer stories that touch on or add context to significant events in Aboriginal history and enhance those interludes heard throughout Ziggy Ramo’s Black Thoughts.
The instrumental layering and supporting vocals from Becca Hatch make this really special too.
Ramo offers this passionate and powerful performance that makes sure every word is heard. A really, really amazing performance with a poignant message.
On his debut release, Ziggy Ramo said, “When I wrote this album I didn’t think I’d be alive to see it released.
“It’s surreal to think that I’ll now get to put this message on such an iconic stage. I’m humbled to be allowed to share my story on Gadigal Country. I hope this performance can create further conversations that Australia needs to have.”
“Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.”
