    Movements & Sounds - Munkimuk a.k.a. Munk: Living and Breathing First Nations Hip Hop

    Movements & Sounds - Munkimuk a.k.a. Munk: Living and Breathing First Nations Hip Hop

    Munk, A.K.A. Munkimuk, is a Jardwadjali Koori hip hop artist, rapper, producer, breakdancer, visual artist and composer (what hasn’t he done?!) from Sydney. He co-founded the hip hop group (although he calls it “just his group of mates”) South West Syndicate and has his own program “Making Tracks” on Koori Radio, a First Nations radio station based in Sydney. During our talk, I found out Munk is a well of wisdom when it comes to Indigenous talent who have travelled the word as world class performers. Inspiring others is his biggest passion, and if you’ll stick to the end, you’ll be treated with the South West Syndicate track “Paradise,” featuring Uncle Wes Marne!

    Movements & Sounds - Luke Patterson: A Soundwalk in Redfern

    Movements & Sounds - Luke Patterson: A Soundwalk in Redfern

    Gamilaroi poet and musician Luke Patterson takes us on a walk through Sydney’s inner-western suburb Redfern, built on Gadigal land. Redfern, seen as the heart of Indigenous activism in Sydney, is Luke’s homebase. After we grabbed a quick coffee, Luke told me all about his experiences of living here – as well as in Kurnell, about his idea of Country, about the blending of city -and urban sounds in his creative work, and last but not least, about his engagement in community projects, such as Ngana Barangarai, publishing poetry by inmates in Junee Correctional Centre.

    You will hear our conversation, as well as the sounds of the city. At times, the city sounds take over – if you find this unpleasant to listen to, I invite you to either let it wash over you, or skip ahead a few seconds while we turn a corner. Thanks for listening to our experiment of a conversation between humans, city, and Country.

    Movements & Sounds - Yidinji: Visual artist and Didgeridoo player

    Yidinji, who is named after his tribal group near Cairns in Australia, is a visual artist and didgeridoo player. We talked about his style of art, the importance of his – uniquely made – digeridoo, and his important work with kids and wider communities in the Canberra region, through his art gallery: Burrunju Aboriginal Art Gallery. From caring for Country, to busking on the Cairns streets to organising workshops: Yidinji does it all. Do check out the website to see his art!

    In this episode of Movements & Sounds, Dominic Allen shares his work on a multi-platform project he initiated and directed: Carriberrie. Carriberrie showcases song and dance by various Indigenous cultural groups across Australia, which can be watched in planetariums as a fulldome experience, through VR, and is also accessible through an online website.

    Movements & Sounds - Mi-kaisha

    This episode features soul and R&B musician Mi-kaisha, a Darumbal Murri and Tongan artist raised in Sydney who shares her experiences of performing for her community, as well as abroad. She made her dream come true studying at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music and has many achievements in her pocket: she was NAIDOC Youth of the Year in 2019, the same year she released her first EP titled Mi-kaisha, she won FBi Radio’s Next Big Thing Award and has even appeared on Australian X Factor. We’ve talked about her passion for bringing lightness and joy to the world through music, and about taking space when it feels right and what it’s like to navigate white-dominated spaces.
