Woodford Folk Festival will stream the performance of MALPA live from its website on Sunday.

MALPA is the joint production between the Pormpuraaw and Injinoo dance groups from the far north of Cape York. They have prepared a specially commissioned production for the Woodford Folk Festival on Sunday night.

“MALPA, supported by Arts Queensland is about bringing the arts from remote communities into the mainstream space as well as taking larger festival experiences like the Woodford Folk Festival to people from remote and regional areas that may otherwise not access these types of arts and cultural exchanges,” says Project Producer, Kate McDonald.

The group will perform on the newly invigorated Village Green venue, which has been updated to improve the performance space. “We wanted to bring the audience much closer to the performers for a more intimate theatre experience, and produce a precious cultural performance, which befits the space,” says Festival Director, Bill Hauritz.

Off to Woodford, here is the Top 5 things to take, Elvis Presley tops Billboard’s Christmas albums list, star session drummer Ricky Lawson dies and Brian May spends Christmas in agony.

The live stream can be viewed from 7:00pm (AEST) on Sundat 29th December at site www.woodfordfolkfestival.com/malpa-live

The Woodford Folk Festival started today (December 27) and goes through to January 1 at Woodfordia on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Woodford Folk Festival is supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland as part of a growing calendar of sporting, cultural and regional events throughout the state.
