BORDERLESS TRAD

The Last Aurochs is a gathering of trad musicians from different backgrounds based in the Inner West, Sydney, Australia.

We play modern arrangements of traditional tunes from known and lesser known traditions such as Ireland, Scotland, France, Spain and Portugal, along with our own compositions and modern trad tunes.

Our name comes from the now extinct aurochs, the wild ancestor of domesticated cattle. The aurochs roamed most of Europe freely for centuries, until it was hunted to extinction. It represents the connections between different peoples as they hunted, worshiped, painted, and carved the aurochs for millennia.
