Now, only two years on - with a child of her own and a world of wisdom at her feet, Emily Wurramara has officially announced the long-awaited release of her debut album ‘Milyakburra’.
Out June 1 and steeped in the sand, salt and concrete of her family, community, culture, islands and all of the souls that have played a part in her journey so far, Milyakburra is 11 tracks again sung in both English and Anindilyakwa that explore the contrasting themes of the two worlds in which Emily grew up - the island and the city. Phonetic Spelling (mil-yhuk- boorrah)
