Podcast: Rising to the sound of freedom

As the saying goes, overnight success usually takes years. Laurette and James, the brother and sister team that makes up the RnB/Soul musical duo LnJ Music have embarked on a lifelong journey to create and share their music with the world, one song and many moments of patience at a time. With the release of their new single, Freedom, we sat down with Laurette and James to go beyond what people see on stage and talk about success, setbacks and the love of their lives - music.

Podcast: Modelling African Beauty

For our second podcast episode, we had a bit too much fun talking to Kenyans and friends Daisy Naulikha and Raisa Ochola about their experiences as Africans Australians in the modelling industry. We find out it is a sometimes bittersweet, sometimes joyous, but always surprising experience. Inevitably, the conversation evolves into a discussion about defining African beauty. And we end the conversation with our signoff segment on the things in the African community making us proud.

Podcast: Aminata Diop – Indigenous. African. Australian?

Welcome to our podcast! As we are launching at the beginning of July, at the start of NAIDOC Week, we wanted to focus our premier episode on a topic at the roots defining belonging. Our first guest is Aminata Diop. She is an Australian of Indigenous heritage; her mother is from the Torres Strait Islands and her father is Senegalese. We were interested to uncover her African Australian Story and as we discovered through our conversation, African Australian is a label she feels doesn’t quite define her. Enjoy our first podcast.

The man creating this joy is African Australian Russel Svinurai, a street musician who has brought the native and traditional Zimbabwean instrument to the city's creative consciousness. He shares his African Australian Story.
