Songs of Emzara
Performed by Dangerous Song : Lizzie O’Keefe - voice & Linsey Pollak - animal samples & cylisax
History often neglects ‘HerStory’, and the stories of The Great Flood were no exception. Indeed, it was Emzara who prophesied the Great Flood and saw the need for an Ark that could carry 2 members of as many species as possible to save them from certain extinction. But we know little of her story.
Emzara was a renowned singer and story teller. Even as a young child she was very self-possessed and was often found conversing with animals. This made people quite wary of her. Already at 4 years of age she rode wild horses and had no fear of any animal and they in turn had no fear of her. She communicated with animals through song and these songs were in turn passed on to her daughters, granddaughters and so on. These were the ‘Songs of Emzara’.
‘Songs of Emzara’ is a tribute to 16 of the species who at this moment struggle for their survival – the Indri Indri, the Black Crested Gibbon, Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo, the Humpback Whale, Blakiston’s Fish Owl, the Booroolong Frog and the Blue-throated Macaw… to name a few. They are present through their voices played by Linsey on his ‘Lyrebird’ (a WX5 midi wind controller). They are the characters that will take Centre-stage, it is their voices that you will hear, voices that will touch your heart.
