With an introduction from friends and fellow Australians King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, this mix was curated for KEXP by the groundbreaking Indigenous, all-women Ripple Effect Band. They bring us a sampling of the music currently being made by Australia's First Nations People, specifically from the region referred to as the “Top End” in the Northern Territory.
