The Gumatj clan member of North East Arnhem Land in the cultural hub of the Northern Territory is heralding a new dawn of musicians traversing cultural and contemporary songs and music.
She firmly believes in the preservation and transmission of her culture and spends considerable time with her elders, learning the knowledge of her people, including the endangered art of Milkarri (the female grieving songlines). The connection with her culture can be heard intertwined through her songs and production.
Having been involved in music since she was a child, Dhapanbal has performed at the NIMAs, Youth Yindi tribute shows, at Woodford Folk Festival with Shellie Morris, sung as backup with East Journey and many other events in North East Arnhem Land.
Over the past two years, she has been mentored by fellow Yothu Yindi band member Stu Kellaway and international touring artist Shellie Morris.
In 2016, she released her award-winning debut single Gurtha.
