Indigenous women from the Western Desert Country have the opportunity to learn, practice and perform music when the Sista Sounds program heads to Mt Liebig, Kiwikurra and Kintore in October and November.
Sista Sounds is a MusicNT program for Indigenous women in Central Australia and the Northern Territory. The program has been running since 2011, and responds to a gap in opportunities for remote Aboriginal women to learn and play music and provides pathways for them to enter the music industry.
Alice Springs MusicNT Manager Milyika Scales said her team was excited to continue providing opportunities for Indigenous women to engage with and forge careers in music. “Sista Sounds is very excited to be heading out into the Western Desert Country, we have never been to these communities before, but have some previous relationships with the girls and ladies out there, and know that they are very keen and talented," she said.
Sista Sounds goes to Mt Liebig, Kiwikurra and Kintore for their fifth block of remote music workshops for 2013. Workshops will be run through schools and youth programs, but women of all ages are welcome to attend the workshops.
• Mt Liebig (NT) on October 21- 26
• Kiwikurra (WA) October 28 - November 1
• Kintore (NT) November 4 - 8
