Classical guitarist Sebastian Jorgensen performs at The Lane tonight. P i c t u r e ; R O B E R T BAYER After 10 years spent touring Europe and Japan in the 1960s and 70s, Jorgensen returned to Australia, where he discovered a deep connection with the music of indigenous people. He said: The music of the desert is as powerful as any other music in the world. Jorgensen has collaborated with Yothu Yindi, Waak Waak Jungi and Warren H Williams among many other indigenous artists during his extensive career. His music effortlessly combines classical styling with the driving rhythms and ancient musical traditions of his many Territory collaborators. Having grown up at the artists commune Monsalvat in Eltham, Victoria, Jorgensen feels at home when visiting Aboriginal communities. The guitarist recently returned from New York, where he completed a successful three-week season performing classical pieces from Spanish, South American and Bach compositions. A firm believer in the power of classical music, Jorgensen has played venues from Yuendumu to Londons Royal Festival Hall (with Jimi Hendrix), and has studied and taught Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American classical guitar. As part of his fifth tour of the Northern Territory, Jorgensen will play a range of classical pieces from Spanish, South American and Portuguese traditions. He will also play some songs he has adapted from traditional Aboriginal Arnhem Land culture, which he was given permission to perform. The gig will start at 7.30pm tonight, with tickets at the door costing $12 per person.
