Sydney Opera House launches Badu Gili LIVE – Free sunset music series to complement First Nations sails lighting experience this summer

This summer, the Sydney Opera House will launch Badu Gili LIVE, a free sunset series of outdoor live music performances presented on its Monumental Steps in celebration of the nightly First Nations sails lighting Badu Gili.

Badu Gili, meaning ‘water light’ in Gadigal language, shares the ancient stories and rich contemporary culture of Australia’s First Nations in a seven-minute animation projected onto the Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sail. The free experience was first launched in 2017 to celebrate First Nations artists on the sails of Australia’s most iconic building, which is visited by almost 11 million people each year.

This summer, First Nations performers including singer/songwriter Leah Flanagan and electro-soul duo Bow and Arrow will transform the Opera House steps into their stage, performing live against the backdrop of the spectacular Badu Gili sail projections. Badu Gili LIVE will take place on the first Friday night of each month from December 2019 to April 2020.

A pop-up bar located on the Monumental Steps will serve a range of drinks such as the cocktail ‘Light on the Sail’ with Archie Rose x Sydney Opera House Inside Gin, native River Mint, ginger, lime and cloudy apple as well as light bites including hummus with macadamia dukkha with harissa of native pepper and charred bread.

First Nations sails lighting Badu Gili runs year-round in four nightly showings. Check the Sydney Opera House website for accurate timings. Badu Gili can be viewed from the top of the Monumental Steps.
