"A work of both outstanding musical quality and extraordinary cultural significance." – Limelight

In 1938, Cooper, an Aboriginal activist who played a pivotal role in establishing equal rights for Aboriginal Australians, led one of the most striking Australian responses to the events of Kristallnacht in Nazi Germany. This new work is a way of preserving and promoting his legacy and bringing to light this remarkable act of compassion.

Ngapa William Cooper combines Westlake’s signature rich musical palette with moving vocals from Lior and Bennett. Sung in English and Yorta Yorta language, this powerful story celebrates a man who left behind a legacy of resistance, solidarity and empathy.
