Desert Divas Volume II is the second compilation from MusicNT’s premiere music development program Desert Divas and Sista Sounds. Over the past six years, Music NT’s Aboriginal women’s music programs have expanded their reach across the Northern Territory delivering Sista Sounds music workshops in remote communities and Divas professional development programs in regional centres. The Divas program has included Saltwater Divas in Darwin, Barkly Divas in Tennant Creek, and Desert Divas in Alice Springs.
“This project was amazing. On the outside, it was about giving aspiring Aboriginal female musicians the skills to walk into a professional studio and record their music. On the inside it was about friendship, culture and music creating something much richer than the sum of the individual parts,” says Adelaide Wood, Indigenous Women’s Music Program Manager MusicNT.
The proceeds of Desert Divas Volume II will go towards continuing to promote and support MusicNT’s Aboriginal women’s music programs.
