Xavier Rudd

Xavier Rudd

Since his successful 2002 debut To Let, Xavier Rudd’s music has deeply resonated with the Australian people, continuing from strength-to-strength with Platinum-selling albums Solace and Food In The Belly, and 5 albums landing in Australia’s top 10. Xavier Rudd’s unmistakable voice, deft multi-instrumentalism and recurring themes of compassion, equality and conservation have made him not only one of Australia’s most iconic voices – but a worldwide sensation. An artist who never strays too far from the touch of the sun, sand and earth himself, SummerSalt promises to be the ideal setting for this legendary performer to leave audiences with a magical experience.

 

Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project

Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project

As evinced by Yothu Yindi’s success in the 1990’s, Indigenous music, song and dance are powerful tools of protest.

The current national conversation surrounding Indigenous affairs and recent wave of new generation artists keeping the message and culture alive; such as A.B.Original, Baker Boy, Kardajala Kirridarra, Electric Fields, not to mention the recent successful reformation tour of Midnight Oil, stalwart supporters of the cause, have made it clear that now is the time for this iconic outft to renew their involvement in that protest.

To that end, Razor Recordings has launched an exciting new live show called Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project, designed to raise awareness and rally support across Australia for the need for treaty with Australia’s First Nations people; to celebrate Indigenous culture and to foster opportunities for emerging Indigenous artists.

 

Sampa The Great

Sampa Teh Great

The  rise  of  Sampa  the  Great  has  been  spectacular  to  watch.  A  female  poet  and  singer-songwriter  who  expresses  herself  through  music,  poetry  and  visual  art,  Sampa  captures  you  with  her  thought  provoking  words,  yet  keeps you  laughing  and  enjoying  the  simplicity  of  creativity.

Born  in  zambia,  at  a  young  age  Sampa  Tembo  and  her  family  decided  to  move  to  Botswana,  where  she  was  raised.  Sampa  views  music  as  the  language  of  the  soul,  transcending  borders  and  acting  as  an  agent  for  positive  change. Separating  Sampa  from  her  peers  is  the  upbringing  and  life  experiences  that  inform  her  lyrics.  Once,  a  group  of  boys  were  set  to  perform  a  rap  song  at  her  primary  school.  She  was  intrigued  by  their  performance  and  asked  if  she  could  join  the  group,  the  response:  “you  can’t  rap  with  us,  because  you’re  a  girl.”  From  that  moment  for-ward  she  decided  not  only  to  be  a  great  female  artist,  but  a  great  artist  period.
