The Grigoryan Brothers reflect on Australian history in their new, original album 'This is Us'
Slava and Leonard Grigoryan have created a suite of music inspired by 18 objects personally selected from the National Museum of Australia’s vast collection, which traces our diverse and complex history.
The compositions are inspired by various artifacts including, ancient 65,000 year old ochre of the Madjebebe rock shelter, a convict love token, a lifebuoy from the Tampa, and Sir Donald Bradman’s famed cricket bat.
This Is Us was composed by Slava and Leonard during lockdown with each living in different states and it marks a new direction for them. While they have included original compositions within programs in the past, this is the first time they have performed an entire program of original works.
