Joy Burch is letting us know that the Indigenous Showcase at the Multicultural Festival will be headlined by Christine Anu:

Acclaimed entertainer Christine Anu will close out the Indigenous Showcase at the 2013 National Multicultural Festival, Minister for Multicultural Affairs Joy Burch announced today.

“Christine is among this country’s top performers, an inspiration for audiences both in Indigenous communities and the country as a whole,” Ms Burch said.

“The ACT NAIDOC Committee has done a wonderful job in securing Christine to perform at the finale of the Indigenous Showcase, which will bring to a close one of the best line-ups ever assembled at the National Multicultural Festival.”

In a career spanning two decades, Christine has released seven solo albums, performed in sell-out musicals, appeared in films including Matrix Reloaded, The Sapphires and Moulin Rouge and a host of TV programs.

The National Multicultural Festival runs from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 February in Canberra City. The Indigenous Showcase, an ACT NAIDOC Committee project supported by the Centenary of Canberra and ACT and Australian governments, runs on 9 and 10 February.

Internationally-renowned singer Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu is another headline act in the Indigenous Showcase, with other leading performers including Benny Walker, The Last Kinection and the Stiff Gins.

“ACT NAIDOC Committee” aka “ACT National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee Committee”
Nice – a contradiction and a redundancy in the same title.
