Two bands, The Bridge Project and Asylum will be bringing the passion of protest against the appalling treatment successive Australian governments have meted out to seekers of asylum and especially their most recent treatment of asylum seekers and refugees in offshore and onshore detention.
Asylum (Jason Roweth, John Napier, Jim Jarvis and Andy Busuttil) has just returned from a successful set of concerts at Woodford Folk Festival where it played to crowds of like-minded people who are also angry and unhappy about the inhumanity being expressed by this nation.
The Bridge Project is made up of musicians from religious and regional backgrounds that currently find themselves in conflict: Ittai Shaked an Israeli Jew, Umit Ceyhan a Turkish Moslem (now a full French citizen after being admitted there as a refugee), Hayden Chee (a Buddhist living in the Blue Mountains) and Andy Busuttil (a Christian). Our very existence and the beauty we create as musicians is a clear indication that conflict between us is not only unnecessary but destructive to our potential.
The musicians will be receiving a minimal fee to perform. The band leader Andy Busuttil will be donating his fee to the fundraising. I
