Last year Australia’s longest running Indigenous music label CAAMA Music ran a nationwide competition to uncover a new crop of female Aboriginal singer-songwriters, and the result is The Alukura Compilation, featuring a song from each of the eight women and released by CAAMA Music on 26 February.
For the Alukura Competition (Alukura meaning ‘women’s place’ in the Arrernte language) CAAMA Music selected eight talented women from all corners of Australia to record at their studios in Alice Springs. During the recording process the women participated in song writing and music business workshops to further their careers. The group were also mentored by musical duo The Stiff Gins [Nardi Simpson and Kaleena Briggs] whilst connecting to the country and culture of Central Australia.
