For the first time, some of the most acclaimed female Indigenous singer/songwriters from Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea join together in a powerful and symbolic collaboration of music and stories.
Barefoot Divas are a group of funny, cheeky and uplifting women backed by their powerhouse six-piece band, performing original music in solos, duets, and groups, proud in their use of Aboriginal language and Maori (Te Reo) lyrics, as well as English, as they combine Roots, Jazz, R&B and Latin-infused soul into soaring harmonies and songs that touch the heart.
Provocative and moving, bold and diverse, Walk A Mile in My Shoes will inspire and resonate with anyone interested in authentic, contemporary songwriting with strong cultural roots, and remarkable women who draw from their indigenous heritage to illuminate universal themes.
“Walk A Mile in My Shoes reminds us of the beauty, integrity, humor, heartache and joy that encapsulates the human experience…” -ABC-TV
