Jimblah is well known as a strong young Aboriginal man, highly respected amongst his peers and wider community. As well as his music, Jimblah has worked hard as a tutor over the past seven years. He is employed by organisations such as Deadly Vibe, Lower Murray Nungas Club, Carclew Youth Arts and Kurruru Youth Performing Arts.
Through mentoring and teaching, Jimblah has had the chance to teach what he loves – Hip Hop. He has had the opportunity to run workshops in regional areas such as the Flinders Ranges, Ceduna, Leigh Creek, Maree, Copley, Iga Warta, Port Lincoln, Port Augusta, Swan Hill, Townsville, Albany, Goulburn, Broome and the list goes on. He also teaches in various schools and detention centres around Adelaide.
Jimblah has toured extensively across Australia, using both his music and intellect to give voice to young people, particularly Indigenous Australians. As such, Jimblah was invited to represent Australian and Indigenous Hip Hop, nationally and international as a member of the Australian Youth Music Council, attending the 3rd International World Music Forum in Tunisia, North Africa. Jimblah made such an impression, he was invited to run his own session at the 4th International World Music Forum in Tallin, Estonia, Hip Hop As a Tool For Social Change.
To date, Jimblah is the only Indigenous Australian to have represented Australia at this prestigious international forum, a role he carries with enthusiasm and great respect. Jimblah has just released his self produced debut album Face The Fire, and has a national tour planned for 2012. A couple of film clips are also in the works, so make sure you keep a lookout for this artist in the near future as big things are promised.
