FIRST NATIONS ARTISTS MAKING TRACKS
The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) and First Nations Media Australia (FNMA) have just announced First Sounds, a new and unique initiative to get more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists heard across Australian radio airwaves.
A series of music compilations curated by FNMA’s indigiTUBE, First Sounds focusses on developing more awareness of regional, remote and city-living Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and the songs and stories they have to share. The compilations will be distributed Australia-wide by the CBAA’s Australian Music Airplay Project (Amrap) to the community radio network.
Unsigned First Nations artists can submit their music to be a part of the premier First Sounds compilation via indigiTUBE. The selection panel includes leading First Nations artists Leah Flanagan and Warren H Williams, as well as Gavin Ivey, Program Manager at Sydney’s Koori Radio.
The good news is that all artists who submit their music will be included on both the Amrap and indigiTUBE online platforms and offered to community radio broadcasters to play on their programs.
All the details for artists to submit are here: https://firstsounds.indigitube.com.au/
Applications close for First Sounds Compilation One on 30 November 2019.
