Be inspired by a Hip-Hop debut that’ll give you hope for Aussie politics.
BY JESSICA BLACKLEY
Ziggy Fatnowna, known as Ziggy, is setting an amazing example for all Australians with his zealous and passionate efforts to ensure the voice of Indigenous Australians’ are heard. He certainly is one of the many catalysts for this change in Australia, addressing the underlying issue of racism in a lot of society and culture. After the widely publicised and controversial debate surrounding the prospect to change the date of Australia Day, perhaps 2017 is the year for some things to change for the first people of this country.
His 3 track Hip-Hop EP released last year, Black Thoughts, produced with Perth-based JCAL (Phocal) and Palace is a must-listen for its emotive and refreshingly honest take on some of the recent racial issues in Australia that have divided us (does the mother painting her child brown for Book Week parade last year ring any bells? That’s addressed.) and the dark reality of our nations past. Sonically and vocally impressive, this is a treat of a first musical effort.
Ziggy will be playing at this year’s Bunbury Groovin The Moo under the Fresh Produce Acts!
