Nidala Barker is an Aboriginal singer-songwriter, activist and outdoor educator based in Byron Bay. Born of the Aboriginal Djugun people of the Kimberley, her music is an anthem for open hearts and raised fists. Driven by her relentless hope in humanity, her work dedicates itself to creating reconciliation; of ourselves with our emotions, of our bodies with our natural environments, and of Indigenous wisdom with innovative ideas. Nidala invites us to think of our place in the world, welcoming our innate belonging to the environment and stepping bravely into our responsibility to protect it. Inspired by musicians like Julia Jacklyn, Billie Holiday and Samia, she mixes strong emotive vocals with low-fi instrumentation to create stripped-back live-feel tracks.
