Welcome to the first Barefoot Divas Newsletter!
Thanks for following this exciting movement. We have some news to share!
Barefoot Divas debut album Walk A Mile In My Shoes is released in America, Australia and NZ this week. You can buy it from iTunes or visit www.barefootdivas.com.au. Their first US review compares the release to Paul Simon’s Graceland!
Walk A Mile In My Shoes is a pre promotion for American and Canadian audiences who will get the chance to experience the magic of the Barefoot Divas when they embark on their first North American and Canadian tour February 2014. CBC (Canada’s equivalent of Australia’s ABC) have embraced the new album and are currently streaming it across their network.
Featuring a selection of surperb live recordings, Barefoot Divas perform a combination of original compositions, Aboriginal language and a fusion of English and Maori (Te Reo) lyrics showcasing their 6 part harmonies and the remarkable voices of the troupe. Swinging between Roots, Jazz, R&B and Latin infused Soul, Walk a Mile in My Shoes is a unique musical creation expressing the diverse and life-affirming experiences of contemporary Indigenous women. The Album will inspire and resonate with anyone interested in authentic, deeply-felt entertainment, contemporary song writing and musical expression.
Back in Australia, Barefoot Divas perform for 2 nights only as part of the QLD Music Festival this coming Friday July 26 & Saturday July 27 at the Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm.Tickets are selling fast so don’t miss out on this extraordinary experience. Buy tickets HERE
And if you still need to be convinced, here’s what renowned Australian Theatre critic James Waite’s had to say when he caught Barefoot Divas in Sydney
“It’s to do with the preservation of centuries-old truths in the bodies of these women – what makes them Indigenous artists. And they remind us how ‘emptied out’ so much of our own culture has become.”
