It is with great sadness that PBS acknowledges the passing of Gunditjmara (Kirrae Whurrong/Djab Wurrung), Bundjalung Senior Elder, songman and storyteller Archie Roach. 

The musical and cultural body of work Archie has gifted to the world has a depth, breadth and significance that will continue to be celebrated and revered by everyone who is lucky enough to hear his music. PBS is honored to have had a long and rich friendship with Archie throughout his incredible career. We are pleased to share some of these highlights with you on air throughout the next few weeks, and online below.  

Rest easy Archie, much love, PBS.
