Educating audiences about indigenous Australian cultures through entertaining performances and music.
Circular Rhythm offers live Indigenous Australian music and performances to audiences as diverse as schoolchildren, international students, special education, conference delegates and tourism visitors. The business is Indigenous owned and operated by myself—Lucas Proudfoot—and is based on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. I enjoy working with different audiences, both in Australia and overseas and I value the opportunity to educate audiences about Indigenous cultures, wherever I go.
Circular Rhytm's performances are contemporary one man shows featuring guitar, stomp box and didgeridoo, as well as other indigenous instruments, including clap sticks and boomerangs.
The format is interactive with audience participation a key component. The songs performed in the show are all original compositions by awarded songwriter, Lucas Proudfoot.
Flexible and Versatile
Each performance is customised to the needs of the audience and can be from 10-60 minutes in duration, depending on venue and event requirements. Schools, for instance, receive a 40-60min show, which introduces the group to Aboriginal cultures by encouraging singing and playing along with the songs. Performances for adult groups are different in tone and focus more on delivering a contemporary Indigenous Australian music experience. These shows can also be tailored to a 15min time slot, which is ideal to open an event and put the audience in a relaxed mood.
Cultural education is an underlying theme of all Circular Rhythm performances and is included in the show through the use of traditional Indigenous musical instruments, along with some contemporary additions like the Didgeribone – a sliding plastic Didgeridoo!
The Circular Rhythm experience helps audiences, especially young people, to build a better understanding of the diverse and interesting cultures that exist in our world today. The positive, entertaining and interactive nature of the performances is an effective and educational way to encourage celebration of the multicultural make up of Australia’s diverse population and the world at large.
Cultural protocols are always highly respected & acknowledge in each community , region & nation of which Circular Rhythm performs in.
