NGA Indigenous Art + Music - Various Artists
Released in conjunction with the Nation Gallery of Australia's acclaimed 'Defying Empire' exhibition, this collection showcases some of Australia's finest, most respected artists.
Gurrumul is a multi-ARIA Award winning musician; an international star, capable of transcending cultural boundaries. However he is considered an enigma within the Australian music industry. Featured here are highlights from 'His Life and Music', his groundbreaking collaboration with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
Shellie Morris is one of Australia's finest Indigenous singer songwriters. The selections here see her opera-trained voice alongside the choir of the Borroloola Songwomen, combining to create a naturally expressionistic beautiful body of work.
ARIA Award winning performer and composer William Barton crosses the divide between classical and traditional indigenous music. His unique, extended technique of the didgeridoo has resulted in an impressive career to date, including collaborations with traditional dance groups, fusion/rock jazz bands, orchestras, string quartets and mixed ensembles.
Warren H Williams is a veteran country music artist. He has recently teamed up with rising star Dani Young for a new album entitled 'Desert Water', recorded in the world's country music capital, Nashville.
