“another brilliant fusion of the traditional and the new.”
DECLAN BYRNE, TRIPLE J
Kardajala Kirridarra directly translates to ‘Sandhill Women’... Kardajala is the name of the mysterious bush woman from the sand hills behind the community of Marlinja.
The band Kardajala Kirridarra who are the descendants of this mysterious bush woman consist of strong women from the Northern Territory communities of Marlinja and Kulumindini (Elliott). Melding the contemporary with the traditional, the music they create is sung in both Mudburra and English and tells the story of the connection between Aboriginal women and country as a reminder about the importance of women as creators.
