MusicNT is absolutely thrilled with the recent success and media coverage of Elliott band Rayella. Rayella recently performed in Perth with the Violent Femmes and participated in panel discussions with Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes) about Indigenous music development.
Rayella first met Brian Ritchie at the 2014 Bush Bands Business skills camp, where Ritchie was a mentor for bands from across Central Australia. Since then they have engaged with programs and advocacy programs around remote music including performing at MONA, being involved with the Australasian World Music Expo with MusicNT and now working with Country Arts WA.
We're incredibly proud of the achievements of Rayella and the revolving door outcomes of the Bush Bands Program.
