Archie Roach presents Dancing With My Spirit feat. Tiddas
It’s been nearly twenty years since Australian audiences have seen the three women of Tiddas take to the stage, but all that’s about to change.
The multiple award winning trio, who enjoyed international acclaim in the 1990’s, have decided to reform as a one off, to join Archie Roach on his national Dancing With My Spirit album May/June tour.
What clinched their decision was the unearthing of an old demo, recorded over 25 years ago in Melbourne and produced by Jen Anderson, one of Australia’s only female producers.
From Jen’s cracking arrangements played by some of Melbourne’s best musicians, the album’s heartbeat is undoubtedly the sublime vocals of Tiddas (Amy Saunders, Lou Bennett and Sally Dastey) joining Archie on many of the album’s songs.
Circumstances back then saw the demo shelved and virtually forgotten, until now. By a stroke of luck it was unearthed. Now audiences get to hear these songs brought back to life by Archie and the Tiddas twenty-five years on.
“I have always loved Tiddas, their music and harmonies. When Amy, Lou and Sally added their voices to these songs recorded over 25 years ago, it just gave it what was needed. It’s like the songs were there and it needed something else. Bringing Tiddas in was that something else. If the girls weren’t on this recording it would be unfinished; Tiddas completed it. I am very grateful and humbled that Tiddas have reunited for the Dancing With My Spirit album tour." Archie Roach
