About

Jacinta was born in Darwin and has grown up in Alice Springs. Being part of two cultures Warlpiri and Anglo-Celtic has influenced the way in which she created her music.

As a youngster she played the violin before her focus switched to voice as part of local hip-hop groups Flava 4 and C-Mobs. She also performs as a solo artist writing her own material and in 2001 was chosen to sing the national anthem for the Yeperenye Federation Festival.

Jacinta has worked as a music workshop facilitator in remote communities and local high schools. She performs regularly at the annual Alice Springs Desert Festival and holds song writing workshops.

Jacinta co-manages the Desert Divas, a collective of young Aboriginal women who love to perform music and are there to inspire others to follow.

Jacinta Price is famous for her soulful voice, which won her Artist of the Year at the 2011 NAIDOC Awards, as well as for her appearances on children’s program Yamba’s Playtime, aired on Imparja TV.

Jacinta Price is also known as Sassy-J when she collaborates with the Alice Springs-based hip-hop group Catch the Fly.
