Lizzie O’Keefe - voice & Linsey Pollak - animal samples & cylisax
’Songs of Emzara’ is a tribute to 16 of the species who at this moment struggle for their survival – the Indri Indri, the Black Crested Gibbon, Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo, the Humpback Whale, Blakiston’s Fish Owl, the Booroolong Frog and the Blue-throated Macaw... to name a few. They are present through their voices played by Linsey on his ‘Lyrebird’ (a WX5 midi wind controller). They are the characters that will take Centre-stage, it is their voices that you will hear, voices that will touch your heart.
We dedicate this album with love to the memory of Liesl Pollak 1954 - 2019.
