EMILY WURRAMARA 

Brisbane-based emerging songwriter Emily Wurramara’s childhood was one of water and music. Growing up on Groote Eylandt in the Gulf of Carpentaria, days were filled with travel, fishing and extended family, a mother telling stories; seeds being sown for her future compositions. In 2018 Wurramara was nominated for an ARIA for Best Blues and Roots for her debut album Milyakburra, produced by David Bridie and which saw Wurramara singing in both her mother tongue Anindiyakwa and English.
