NAIDOC Week on triple j Unearthed!
Join us in celebrating NAIDOC Week on triple j Unearthed! We’ve got a whole lot of stuff planned, including playing a full 24 hours of Indigenous Australian music on Unearthed Digital Radio! Here’s what’s happening:
NAIDOC Week Collab
We’re inviting three amazing Indigenous artists to collaborate on a new song! In the past we’ve invited acts like Kuren and Denni, and Emily Wurramara and Steady to team up on a new track, but this year we’re going one further and adding a third collaborator to the mix: we’re teaming Alice Skye up with Ziggy Ramo and Trials from A.B. Original!
They’ll keep you up to date about the collab all though this week on triple j Drive - track their progress here - before the collab is finished and uploaded to Unearthed on Thursday afternoon!
All Indigenous Australian music on Unearthed Digital Radio
This Tuesday, we’re playing all Indigenous Australian music on Unearthed Digital Radio.
It’s 24 hours of the best songs by Independent Indigenous Australian artists who’ve uploaded their tunes to triplejunearthed.com, including an all-Indigenous episode of TOPS on triple j Unearthed, presented by Kristy Barker!
Feature Artist: Tasman Keith
Tasman Keith is your Feature Artist all this week on triple j Unearthed! He’s a Gumbaynggirr man continuing the traditions of his people by telling stories through his music. His new song is ‘My Pelopolees’ – an ode to his grandfather William Jarrett, and his uncle, Uncle Spits. It’s also about triumphing in the face of adversity, and the socio-political conditions imposed on Indigenous Australians.
NIMAs comp winner!
This Wednesday, you’ll find out which Indigenous Australian artist is playing the National Indigenous Music Awards thanks to Unearthed! Our list of past winners is immense: Baker Boy, Thelma Plum, and Kuren count among them.
