OCTOBER NEWSLETTER


Dear friends,
hope this newsletter finds you enjoying the rejuvenation of spring! I write to you having just arrived in colouful India for some travels and adventures of a musical kind. I’ve come here off the back of completing a national tour of the new album. Along with  Lara and Kate, we played  from Darwin to Katherine and  all the way down to Melbourne.
All the gigs have been fun,  but probably the most moving one for me was a small show we did inside The Wickham Point detention centre outside of Darwin. We  played for a group of asylum seekers, who grateful for the diversion of music, joined in on the singing and danced.  The experience  has lead me to reflect on many things especially  the contrasting good fortune of my own freedom -free to roam and now here in India.

Today I prepare with talented local friend and photographer Ronicka Kaur to make a film clip of a song  about the ancient city of Varanasi which  features on  Birds of The Moon – We start shooting tomorrow! The somewhat jet lagged organisation involves many cups of chai, body paint, traditional dancers jewellery, boats down the Ganges and sweet ladoos!

Returning to Sydney in a months time I hope those residing  there can make it down to the Camelot lounge on 1st of November for our show. (details below).
Meanwhile here is the latest review of Birds of The Moon..

4 STAR ALBUM REVIEW
From time spent in Mali, Mexico and India, it’s obvious that Lieberman is a musical sponge with the ability to master any instrument she fancies.

Her skilled execution of the kora, a 21-stringed West African harp, and acoustic guitar complement her rhapsodic lyrics and unadulterated voice on what proves to be a stellar fourth album from the Sydney local. Along with Kate Adams on cello and Lara Goodridge on violin, Lieberman mixes traditionally classical instrumentation with contemporary folk, resulting in an album encompassing everything from the stark pop melodies in Varanasi to lilting ambience inIncantation. – Millie Ellen The Music – Link to article

Signing off with some inspiring words from one of India’s great poets

“Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. ” – Rabindranath Tagore

Until next time and thanks for reading
