INDIGENOUS AUSTRALIAN GIRLS CHORAL SONG PERFORMED BY GONDWANA CHOIR ARTISTS. SONG WRITTEN IN COLOBRATION WITH CAT EMPIRE FRONTMEN FELIX RIEBL AND OLLIG MCGILL
Marliya is a group of young Indigenous singers based in Cairns, whose music goes straight to the heart. Born out of a collaboration between Gondwana Choirs and Cat Empire band members Felix Riebl and Ollie McGill, these young women sing a work from Spinifex Gum, with a warmth and richness that belies their age. Marliya inspires and uplifts with a unique mix of joy, passion and humour. Recorded at the Babinda Boulders, a popular swimming spot and picnic area amid tropical rain forest in the foothills of the Bellenden Ker Range Cairns, this is a song about friendship. It’s a special friendship that unites a choir, because performing involves turning many voices into one.
