Sugar Mountain Sideshow

Following their J Award nomination for Double J Album of the Year, Kardajala Kirridarra announce debut Melbourne and Sydney headline dates this January to celebrate the release of their debut self-titled album. Sharing the spine-tingling visuals for the stripped-back version of Warmala by David Williams and Sooji Kim, Kardajala Kirridarra will also perform at Sugar Mountain, MOFO at Mona and Yabun Festival in January, and Perth Festival in February.

Sung in English and Mudburra, a rarely heard Indigenous language, Kardajala Kirridarra has received widespread acclaim, earning six feature albums at Australian radio, praising their ability to meld the contemporary with the traditional. Audiences will be treated to live renditions of Ngabaju (Grandmother’s Song), Ngurra (Rain Song) and new focus track Warmala (Young Girl’s Song). A story of young girl coming of age, the accompany video was filmed in Marlinja.

The groundbreaking collective features songwriter and vocalist Eleanor Dixon (Rayella, Desert Divas), vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and electronic producer Beatrice Lewis (Beatrice, Haiku Hands), story-teller and poet Janey Dixon; and MC Kayla Jackson. Formed under the moniker Kardajala Kirridarra, which translates to ‘Sandhill Women,’ Kardajala is the name of a mysterious bush woman from the sandhills behind the community of Malinja, NT. From their inception until now, Kardajala Kirridarra has won a MusicNT Song of the Year Award, played at Golden Plains Festival, Wide Open Spaces and Barunga Festival, and were the first all female band to perform at the Bush Bands Bash.
