GET IT LIVE - GET IT AT TRADES HALL ARTS, bringing class back into the
class struggle . . .

TELEK (Papua New Guinea) and
BLACK PARADISE (West Papua) with
Glen Lox, Phil Wales & David Bridie
George Mamua Telek, or TELEK as he is known to his legion of fans in
Papua New Guinea, has long been at the forefront of the PNG music scene.
Telek comes from the village of Raluana, near Rabaul in the Papua New 
Guinean island province of East New Britain Telek's songs and his 
hauntingly beautiful voice, traverse many musical styles perfectly 
capturing the spirit of the proud cultural heritage of the Tolai people 
of Papua New Guinea.

Telek performs in Melbourne with bass player Glen Low, from Rabaul who
plays with the famous PNG band BARIKE, and long time Australian
collaborator David Bridie (Not Drowning, Waving & My Friend the 
Chocolate Cake).

This is also the final appearance of BLACK PARADISE - the hit of The
Morning Star Concert For West Papua - before they return to their
troubled home of West Papua. If you haven't been able to catch this 
unique band yet this is one of your final chances!

Black Paradiseís lyrics paint pictures of liberation. In fact, all the
members of Black Paradise work for the amnesty international-type
organisation Elsham (Institute for the Study and Advocacy of Human 
Rights) who investigate human rights in the troubled territory and 
educate the rest of the world about the beauty of West Papuan culture. 
Like East Timor, the West Papuan story is one whose time has come.
