5 Indigenous Artists To Watch In 2018 with Kaiit

5 Indigenous Artists To Watch In 2018 with Kaiit

She's playing Nocturnal at the Melbourne Museum on July 6 as part of NAIDOC Week.

Friday 6 July will see Melbourne Museum once again taken over by Nocturnal, with a special event dedicated to Indigenous women inspired by this year's NAIDOC theme, Because Of Her, We Can! They've organised a pretty bloody fantastic lineup of acts, headlined by Thelma Plum, who'll be joined by Mojo Juju, Kaiit and DJ Sovereign Traxx.

Kaiit has recently released a new single in OG Luv Kush p.2 (scope the video clip below), has very kindly sent us a few more Indigenous (both musical and otherwise) artists we should be keeping an eye on, which you can check out below. And for more information on the event and to nab yourself a ticket, head to the Melbourne Museum WEBSITE.

DRMNGNOW

Neil is an amazing Yorta Yorta independent artist. Spreading awareness and understanding of our land in such a beautiful way.

CHARLOTTE ALLINGHAM AKA COFFIN BIRTH

Charlotte (@coffinbirth) is such a talented creator/ illustrator based in Naarm (Melb). Creating such powerful pieces of the world we are living in now but such a huge inspiration from her Aboriginal lineage.

ALICE SKY

Alice is beautiful sister of mine that is also based in Naarm. Such soft and poetically intriguing sounds.

BIRDZ

Birdz is a very talented rapper that has been in the music scene for a little while now. I remember the first time watching him perform with the back of a truck as his stage and it was so beautiful to watch and to see him reppin’ his culture with his crew Bad Apples Music supporting him.

MOJO JUJU

Juju is someone I have seen around in the scene from watching her perform at gigs, even when I was first starting out. Super inspiring seeing her rep her culture in not only her music but her visuals and her live performance...i.e that PIMPIN Aboriginal flag sequin two-piece set! So excited for her upcoming project 'Native Tongue'.
