Based in Cairns, Queensland, Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir is the most exciting and well-recognised group of young Indigenous performers in the country. The rich, vibrant sound of the choir warms the hearts of audiences whenever it performs.

The choir regularly collaborates the Australian Chamber Orchestra and with Indigenous artists including Archie Roach, Jessica Mauboy, Lou Bennett, Uncle Seaman Dan, Dr G, Christine Anu, Troy Cassar-Daley, Briggs and Emma Donovan. They have performed at G20 Summit, the Cairns NAIDOC Gala Ball and multiple times at the Sydney Opera House.

In 2017, GICC undertook its first European tour, introducing audiences to music in multiple Indigenous languages and the exciting arrangements of traditional songs and dances from the Torres Strait. This tour also included the start of the major collaboration with the Vienna Boys’ Choir and the Sydney Children’s Choir in Songs of My Country.
