Uruguayan-born Australian Albert Revelo presents a synthesis of politically-motivated popular songs that evolved from exiled artists of the regimes of Uruguay. On guitar Albert plays his own rhythmic patterns fusing Afro-Uruguayan candombe rhythms to a classical heartbeat. The songs presented are not his own but maintain his cultural integrity and at the same time maintain an Australian persona. Albert brings forth his emotions through rhythmic prose and protest.
Combined Unions’ Choir
Formed in 1988, the Combined Unions Choir is the longest ‘Art in Working Life’ project in Australia. They have sung at concerts, protests, May Day, and peace rallies; entertaining people with their repertoire of political, peace and social justice songs. ‘A movement that sings never dies…’.
Sue Wighton is a Brisbane-based singer/songwriter and journalist. She loves to share her sometimes original and quirky, sometimes borrowed and heartfelt songs and her love of words—both spoken and sung—with audiences. She has been known to bake.
Playing a unique fusion of Latin American and original songs, Jumping Fences create a sensitive insight into the daily struggles of people. This month sees a return to the big line-up, with Dan, James, Ross and Robbie joining the song-writing partnership of Sue Monk and Lachlan Hurse playing arrangements that move easily between tenderness and energy, supporting lyrics that weave a rich fabric from the poetry of everyday life.

People from all directions.
We address the following questions:
1. Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
2. Ownership question: Who owns the land? Rights to the city, right to country. The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
3. Political question: This is the class struggle. Who owns the means of production? Who governs? How are democratic rights won and shared.
