One Mob Dreaming Choir is a collaboration of Indigenous and non-Indigenous children’s voices from the Bega Valley. The children have co-written one of the songs they will perform at Giiyong Festival. They have been rehearsing with Chelsy Atkins and Corinne Gibbons for two months or more, to bring their beautiful message of hope for the future and hope for the environment in a joyful expression of song.
Chelsy is a a favourite local artist from Pambula who is making a big impact wherever she performs. Her powerful songs in traditional language are mesmerising and compelling. Corinne is an internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter. She is an advocate for children’s voices and has been directing choirs of children all around the world for the past twenty years, currently collaboratively writing her fourth children’s musical featuring a song co-written with Chelsy.
The children are from Bega Valley, Pambula and Eden Primary Schools, as well as Eden Marine High Schools.
