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 EdwardsWuigada in Mutti Mutti means 'to sing'.   

In this edition of Wuigada we hear from Western GuGu Yelanji and Birri Gubba song man, Troy Jungaji Brady. Troy's career spans over 20 years, leading a number of successful bands before hitting out on his own. His music explores language and connection to the country of his ancestors north of Cairns and Proserpine. We asked Troy what he has been doing recently:

"In terms of my music, I've only recently started performing live and recording due to COVID19, and I also had major heart surgery in August 2020.  I've just released a new single in response to systemic racism and social injustice issues (BLM) here within Australia & abroad. I also lost a family member at the Brisbane Watchhouse here in Brisbane last year, which triggered protest and mass media attention. The digital single release is titled "Is There A Way" and features my son Dean Brady, it's highlighting all the above mentioned issues."

It is with great pleasure that we share Troy Jungaji Brady's top picks for Wuigada.
