COMING to The Abbey tomorrow is rock & roll soul singer and songwriter Dan Sultan’s “Back to Basics” national solo tour, taking in 13 cities and towns across Australia, and will spread the word that Constitutional Recognition of Australia’s First Peoples is the right thing to do.
“This isn’t just an Aboriginal issue or a Torres Strait Islander Issue, it’s not just a left wing or a right wing issue or a black or white issue, it’s a people issue, it’s a human issue and it’s an Australian issue,” Sultan says.
In his view, recognition could fix the historical exclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from the Australian Constitution and remove discrimination from it.The “Rock for Recognition tour is an initiative of ANTaR and Oxfam Australia, who are working with “Recognise,” the campaign for Constitutional Recognition, to raise broad public awareness of the need for recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our nation’s founding document.
Sultan has been busy recently recording his third studio album, due for release in the first half of 2014. For this album he has teamed up with producer Jacquire King in Nashville.
