Archie Roach – review | Alex Needham

Her Majesty’s Theatre, AdelaideThe only indigenous Australian on the bill at the Adelaide festival, Archie Roach generates extraordinary warmth. At the end, the audience leaps up for a standing ovation; in the ladies’ loo, one woman is tears and another is saying the concert made her ashamed to be white, though Roach’s songs are rarely finger-pointing. Instead they’re rousing affirmations of community, love and universal brother-and-sisterhood, which could sound syrupy in the wrong hands but in Roach’s are often deeply moving.Roach is one of Australia’s most prominent Aboriginal singers. His back story is shocking. Like so many Aborigines of his generation (he’s 56), as a baby Roach was removed his parents and given to white foster parents to bring up, part of a 60-year government campaign of racist social engineering. Roach’s first single was released in 1990 – the self-explanatory Took the Children Away, sung tonight by an Aboriginal gospel choir
