With the success of last year inaugural Festival and the ongoing support of our partners, we are now into our second year and we have grown to fill the whole month of September with outstanding music, ceremonies and art throughout Sydney and the Blue Mountains. On 1 September 2012, The Sydney Sacred Music Festival will start with a very special sunrise Aboriginal Whale Ceremony on Balmoral Beach in partnership with Gadigal Information Service Aboriginal Corporation, Mosman Art Gallery and the Cultural Arts Collective. All are welcome to attend and celebrate with Uncle Max Harrison the rising of Grandfather (Sun) and the singing up of Guruwal (the Whale).
During the month we will travel to Parramatta, Campbelltown, Blacktown, Penrith, Leura, Bondi and places in between showcasing devotional music both ancient and new, diverse, mainstream, new age and cross cultural.
