Black Empire: Curious Australia

Synopsis

It is easy to feel alone in the Australian music industry, but for First Nations' musicians, the isolation can be overwhelming, especially when racism and exploitation are thrown into the mix.

And despite the fact that Black song has played such a transformative role in Australia's history - from Archie Roach's 'Took the Children Away' to Thelma Plum's 'Homecoming Queen' - it's still seen by music execs as just another marketable asset.

But what if it could be different? What if there was hope for something better?
