Saltwater Sounds

IF YOU MISSED THE SALTWATER DIVAS at their sold-out Darwin Fringe show, you’re in luck!

This talented group of emerging Indigenous singer-songwriters bring their soulful tunes to the next Sounds @ Sunset gig against the perfect backdrop – the Nightcliff Foreshore.

The women sing songs in their native languages as well as English, representing a sisterhood bonded by music.

Pele Savage joined the Saltwater Divas not long after moving to Darwin from Thursday Island three months ago.

“All of our songs are originals. Some were written together through the program but all of the artists wrote individual songs as well,” she says.

“When I perform I do some covers, but have a bit of an RnB, pop and reggae sound. I keep my music quite positive with a good message.”

Savage says the Sounds @ Sunset gig will be very relaxed and informal – perfect for a Dry season evening!

The Divas join an all-female line up for the fourth instalment of the free monthly gigs, with Tali Rain and Ellie Grover also strumming a tune or two.
