Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association!
2013 has been a busy and fulfilling year with many accomplishments across the different divisions of CAAMA, including awards for our film department, international cultural exchanges for the radio department and a new event staging and training program from CAAMA Music.
Stewart Gaykamangu sings this version of 'Silent Night' in the Aboriginal Yolngu language of his home in East Arnhem Land. This has been an eventful year for Stewart, who won the NT Song of the Year Award in the Pop category for his song 'Lorrpu'. He has also recorded his debut album (which will be released in 2014) as well as performed at the Mbantua Festival, Remote Indigenous Media Conference in Ntaria and the Indigenous Economic Develeopment Forum in Alice Springs.
Stay tuned for a lot more from Stewart Gaykamangu in 2014. To purchase Stewart's version of Silent Night visit iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/silent-night-arnhem-style/id773930910?i=773930916&uo=4
