Rhythms magazine is Australia’s leading roots music publication and their latest issue features two CAAMA Music bands.
First up is a feature written by CAAMA Music’s publicist, Nicola Pitt, who toured Tjintu Desert Band to Barunga Festival in June. A trip that included many miles of highway, school visits, screaming fans, the Devils Marbles, hot springs and an introduction to the ukelele.
Following straight after is an interview with Apaak Miller from Blekbala Mujik about their new Greatest Hits Live album and their Sand Tracks tour. Apaak says ‘”Here we are, wanting to close the gap by giving positive messages. The maintenance of culture and links to the past will take this country into the future, i wouldn’t thought! What we have in Australia is unique. Right in our backyard we’ve had an amazing cultural platform for thousands of years. In our hands, together as a collective. [Listening to our songs] the message is timeless. It’s not getting old”.
