Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Melbourne Music Week
The stories of connection between Aboriginal women and country.
This year Melbourne Music Week presents Kardajala Kirridarra, a collection of strong women from the Northern Territory communities of Marlinja and Kulumindini (Elliott) in collaboration with electronic Melbourne music artist Beatrice Lewis.
About the concert
Melding the contemporary with the traditional, the music they create is sung in both Mudburra and English, and tells the story of the connection between Aboriginal women and country, acting as a reminder about the importance of sharing language and the key role women play as creators in Indigenous culture.
