Great music, talented musicians, bands and performers you need to hear, that’s what.

The team from Winanjjikari Music Centre are very keen to share stories of local bands and musicians and their music with listeners on air and online on 8CCC, and have been working on a project so that they can start to do this later in  2014.  The idea is to create program pieces featuring interviews with musicians and songwriters and showcase new songs either recorded live at an event or in the studio in Tennant Creek.

This week Joy Taylor worked with the team, doing some planning, recording and editing and made the first program segment, working with singer songwriter Raymond Jungari Dixon from Elliot.  We also recorded a few new IDs and announcements, so you’ll hear the voices from the Winanjjikari Music Centre team very soon on 8ccc.

You’ll hear Raymond’s interview and new song on 8CCC’s local music program Local Connections.  AND If we are successful with our funding applications, we hope to bring you more of these in the future, so stay tuned.
