Apakatjah - The Dead Heart

Apakatjah - The Dead Heart
Deadly Hearts is a celebration of music, culture, and identity, from the hearts and mouths of the new generation of Indigenous Australia.

The call to artists: “What song has spoken strongest to you about growing up an Indigenous Australian?”

The response: twelve incredible new renditions from this country’s deadliest and most inspiring young musicians, taking us on a sonic journey through the foundations of their musical inspiration, and the songs that have helped shape their Indigenous identity and culture.

From Adelaide to Arnhem Land, from Brisbane to Regional NSW, Deadly Hearts showcases Australian music at its absolute finest. Each artist brings their own flavour whilst paying homage to these songs that hold a special place in their hearts.

The modern sound of Indigenous Australia. A landmark album from the next generation of storytellers.
