Episode Three: Rhyan Clapham (aka Dobby)
Rhyan Clapham comes from the world’s first engineers and stone masons, whose knowledge of physics and water ecology is profound. It’s a birthright he is proud of, the Murrawarri territories straddle the border of the states of New South Wales and Queensland.
Dobby is a recipient of the Peter Sculthorpe Music Fellowship and has composed Pitara Yaan Muruwarikiand a new chamber music offering. For Dobby it’s also about language reclamation in the music. His work across many genres of music has seen him deemed as one of the new wave of Aboriginal creatives.
