ABOUT MARK ATKINS

Acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest Didgeridoo players, Mark Atkins is also recognised internationally for his collaborative projects with some of the world’s leading composers and musicians. A descendant of Western Australia’s Yamitji people, as well as of Irish/Australian heritage, Mark Atkins is known not only for his masterly playing, but also as a storyteller, composer, percussionist, visual artist and instrument maker. Through Mark’s lips the air blows as a natural desert sound, in old ethnic chants and in polyphonic melodies of astonishing rhythm


ABOUT MAGO MENLA

Mago Menla brings together ancient and contemporary sounds and electronic sound production in a dynamic way. It integrates this with breathwork, Meditation and more to journey deeply into oneself and connect deeply with the living world around us, ultimately these two are never separate. Mago is a Central Arnhem Land name for Didgeridoo, Arnhem Land and surroundings is the only true traditional origination of this deeply connecting instrument. It has been part of the Dreaming of the people up there for long long time, before it was played anywhere else.

Menla is the Tibetan word for medicine.
