A STATEMENT BY AMOS AND EBAN ROACH ON BEHALF OF THE ROACH FAMILY

”We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Gunditjmara (Kirrae Whurrong/Djab Wurrung), Bundjalung Senior Elder, songman and storyteller Archie Roach.
 
Archie passed, surrounded by his family and loved ones, at Warrnambool Base Hospital after a long illness. We thank all the staff who have cared for Archie over the past month.
 
Archie wanted all of his many fans to know how much he loves you for supporting him along the way.
 
We are so proud of everything our dad achieved in his remarkable life. He was a healer and unifying force. His music brought people together.
 
A private ceremony will follow.
 
We ask that the media please respect the family’s privacy.
 
Archie’s sons, Amos and Eban Roach, have given permission for Archie’s name, image and music to be used, so that his legacy will continue to inspire.”

Archie Roach was deeply committed to creating opportunities for First Nations artists, creating the Archie Roach Foundation.
