This week's feature album is volume 5 in the collaborative series from the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) and First Nations Media Australia; First Sounds Vol. 5.

First Sounds Vol. 5 launches another set of tracks with an incredible diversity of sounds produced in various locations and languages. Vol. 5 features artists from Lutruwita (Tasmania), Kaurna (Adelaide), Meanjin (Brisbane) to Tamworth (Gomeroi), the Torres Strait Islands and stretching to Noongar plains (Perth). This compilation continues the pioneering of our First Nations music. From soul hip-hop to saltwater reggae, atmospheric electronica, Naaguja traditional dance songs and truth-telling punk rock.

In selecting the final artists, tracks were listened to by a rotating panel of First Nations music industry leaders. Emily Wurramara, Dallas Woods, Alice Skye and Shellie Morris are just some that have participated in the curation to deliver a strong vision of First Nations music today.
