Emily Wurramara

One of Australia's leading Indigenous voices joins the CBAA Conference program

The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) is excited to announce that the APRA AMCOS Ambassador joining the lineup for its 2018 national conference is one of Australia’s leading voices in Indigenous music, Emily Wurramara.

Emily grew up in remote Groote Eylandt in the Gulf of Carpentaria before moving to Brisbane to pursue her natural talent for music. Emily’s 2016 EP ‘Black Smoke’, which featured stunning stories sung both in English and Wurramara's traditional language Anindilyakwa, garnered critical acclaim, as well as racking up 1 million Spotify streams and spending 10 weeks in the CBAA's Amrap Charts.

This year, she has released her debut album 'Milyakburra' and celebrated with a sell-out national tour.

The CBAA is thrilled to have Emily entertain and educate its delegation of community broadcasters from all over Australia at the Gold Coast Exhibition Centre in November, with thanks to APRA AMCOS.

Don't miss the opportunity to experience the amazing voice of Emily Wurramara, as well as the rest of the action-packed program. Snap up your earlybird tickets to the CBAA conference before they close on Monday, 3 September.

Emily's latest single is Lady Blue. Community broadcasters can access this track for airplay on Amrap's AirIt.

And earlybird tickets extended!


In early September, the CBAA's Amrap invited a troupe of community radio Music Directors and station staff to Brisbane for the annual BIGSOUND music industry conference. During the jam-packed 3 days of workshops, panels, live music showcases and sessions, Amrap provided delegates with important opportunities to forge closer connections with community radio.


APRA often receives queries from Community Radio Stations about legal sources of music. Can we stream Spotify or convert YouTube videos for broadcast? Where can we legally source music?
