New single by Apakatjah ‘In Between’

24th Feb 2017

Apakatjah’s second single is released to iTunes today – the title track from their upcoming album IN BETWEEN.

Taken as a reference to their name, the word ‘apakatjah’ is a Luritja kriol word for a person of mixed race heritage. “Not quite black, not quite white. Somewhere in-between! We once perceived it to be a negative – socially constructed to separate and segregate, to divide and conquer. But now we realise that as Aboriginal people, we’re not the only ones who live this life, but many others. Time to embrace it!”
