Archie Roach in Conversation with Sean Sennett
Archie only recently put out live recordings of his shows: three boxed sets of his work from 2012-2018 which includes, Into The Bloodstream - Let Love Rule and 2018’s Dancing With My Spirit – when Tiddas reformed to sing with him. In addition, he’s working on a major project – a memoir – which sees him casting his mind over his life as a whole, not just as one of Australia’s foremost musical voices, but as an advocate for the rights of First Nations people and a significant contributor to Australian cultural life.
