Cosmopolitana - “We All Come From Somewhere Else.”
Featuring the five brilliant musicians of Mikelangelo & the Blacksea Gentlemen, Cosmopolitana is a riotous, fast-paced, explosion of sound, image and story, drawing on the experiences of the 120,000 people – many of them fleeing war and turmoil around the world – who arrived in the tiny town of Cooma in NSW, to help build The Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme.
"The remarkable and evocative music and lyrics of the talented musicians of Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen provide an insight into the lives of those who celebrated and struggled, suffered and triumphed and through their courage and endeavour forged a new Australia"
Peter Wilkins, Canberra Times, September 2015
