This moving and intriguing album showcases modern musicians interacting with and responding sensitively and creatively to archive recordings of Tiwi voices.
As the tagline on the album cover says, this collection features “Tiwi voices past and present in new musical conversations”.
Boasting a rich sonic palette, top-notch production values and a cheerful embrace of eclecticism, this album inspires the listener to become truly immersed in the carefully crafted melodies, varied voices and atmospheric flourishes.
‘Ngiya Awungarra: I Am Here Now’ is an intelligent work of art worthy of your attention.
