kardijalaKardajala Kirri-Darra

Made up of strong women from the Northern Territory communities of Marlinja and Elliott, Kardajala Kirri-Darra (The Sand Hill Women) perform songs in Mudburra and English singing the story of what it is to be an Indigenous woman, walking in two worlds. Melding contemporary and the traditional, their music sits in the space between the old and the new and takes you on a journey through the heart songs of their beautiful desert country. Their music travels across down-tempo, electronica and hiphop and creates a strong, energetic and cinematic musical experience.

Through sharing their stories, Kardajala Kirri-Darra are making a stand and empowering women of all ages. In 2016 they won an NT song of the year award and performed at Barunga Festival, Wide Open Space, Freedom Day Festival, Desert Harmony Festival and were recently the first all female band to perform at the Bush Bands Bash in Alice Springs. In 2017 they will also be playing at Golden Plains. Their debut album will be released early 2017…
