See Toby Martin, front man of Sydney band Youth Group, launch ‘Songs From Northam Avenue’ along with musical collaborators: Dang Lan, Mohammed Lelo, Adnaan Baraky, Bree van Reyk, Zoe Haputmann and Cameron Emerson-Elliott.
Inspired by the people of Bankstown, the album emerged from a songwriting residency commissioned by Urban Theatre Projects. From the front yards of Northam Avenue, to Michael K’s mixed business and coffee shop on Chapel Road South, the collaboration came to tell Western Sydney stories and include traditional Arabic and Vietnamese instrumentation.
Following its release in February 2017, the album has been met with great acclaim
