Blak Sound: Emerging First Nations Voices of Now presents five incredible new First Nations artists across an evening of music.
The power of First Nations peoples carrying song in the now is a story of resilience. It is a story of Blak survival. It is a story of sound that has always been expressed through this land. It is a story of sound that has in one form or another been expressed through peoples of this land. First Peoples’ voices have always been present. In 2019, 230 years since the beginning of colonisation, First Peoples of this land are bringing these sounds to audiences with a power and purpose. Blak Sound is more than 60,000 years of song in the now, embodied in a diverse array of emerging First Nations sound and song carriers.
Blak Sound: Emerging First Nations Voices of Now is part of the Blak Sounds program, empowering First Peoples artists in their music careers. Applications for this program (incorporating the performance at YIRRAMBOI Festival) are open now – click here for details and to apply.
