Wuigada is a dedicated space where First Nations musicians can share and celebrate music made by other First Nations musicians with PBS audiences.

Wuigada was named and developed by the highly acclaimed indigenous singer songwriter, Kutcha Edwards. Wuigada in Mutti Mutti means 'to sing'.

In this edition of Wuigada we hear from Yolŋu surf-rock band, King Stingray. 

King Stingray have recently released their third song, 'Milkumana' which means to show, share or pass on knowledge through stories and song in Yolŋu Matha. With strong musical, cultural and familial ties to Yirrkala, in North East Arnhem Land, King Stingray are now connecting with audiences all over Australia. We can't wait to see what they achieve next.
