Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this Riff article, Brent Keogh speaks to Sydney-based flamenco guitarist and ARIA award nominee, Damian Wright. The interview discusses Wright's experiences and perspectives on world music in Australia. Where much of the academic discourse on world music focuses on broader theorization and systemic critiques, the following interview presents experiences and insights from a musician contributing to, and working in, the complex discursive space of world music in Australia. In doing so, Wright's perspectives contribute to broader discussions concerning the politics of otherness, musical patronage and cultural diversity in Australian music.
