There are a lot of great things musically going on right now in our local indigenous community, including this new track from the very young collective Cairns Murri Crew.
The soulful hip hop outfit – made up of school students – have a released the video for their powerful song Built To Last, which is off an upcoming compilation Song Nation Vol 1. The talent coming from these kids is very impressive, especially considering how young they all are – take a look at the clip below:
The Song Nation Vol. 1 compilation will showcase music from young indigenous artists across the country and is an intiative from non-for-profit organisation Desert Pea Media, who focus on bringing the younger indigenous community together through music, film and story-telling.
If the Desert Pea Media name sounds familiar to you theMusic reading folk, you might recall we chatted to the guys who run the organisation around a year ago about getting local youths more involved in the wider Aus hip hop community.
Song Nation Vol 1 is out on Friday 11 July, as part of the NAIDOC week celebrations.
