Nancy Bates, and Allara Pattison-Briggs have formed a collaborative duo ‘Dhungala Baarka – Two Rivers, One Song’. Having met as band members for Archie Roach in 2016, they have fostered a unique musical relationship. This innovative duo have arranged songs from Bates’ new album ‘For Your Love’ to be released in 2018, to present some of the most exquisite and emotionally charged original songs in Australia today. Guitar, double bass, soulful vocals and gifted story-telling personifies this new duo, and is unlike anything being delivered nationally, or internationally. Through the development of contemporary music, by Australia’s ‘First Women’, Bates and Briggs-Pattison are the continuation of Ancient Songlines connecting Yorta Yorta, and Barkindji.
