English has gradually become the global language of popular songs, but at what cost? Where English may have one word to describe an emotion, another
language may have hundreds. Are the meanings of songs in danger of being lost in translation?
Renowned jazz vocalist Fem Belling and a panel of performers and music industry experts will explore the impact that the proliferation of English is having on musicians and listeners from an Australian context.

Further Information.

We recommend that you pre-register for this event. Entry is still possible without registration but may be subject to availability.
