FIND YOUR INNER SPARK
Kitch Culture is a unique musical experience combining cultural arts and storytelling with music technology. Presented by award-winning artist, performer, mentor and electronic Samoan Toa (Warrior), Kitchener Wesche, this performance uncovers the power of knowing your history, your culture and your village. Kitch Culture takes you on an interactive journey of discovery as Kitch follows his roots of his family tree, from the rich history of Samoa to the shared cultural history of his children, who are proudly Samoan and Indigenous Australians.
Students will learn about important events in Samoan history, cultural celebrations, rites and rituals as well as activity participating in traditional dance and learning the basics of Samoan language.
Using fascinating ancient storytelling and exciting modern music, Kitch Culture highlights the power of storytime: sparking curiosity in different cultures and encouraging students to find their own inner spark.
