RAW: Sista Act – Women of Country – Nexus 7pm – th July

Sista Act: Women of Country features seven South Australian Aboriginal women from different language groups and diverse backgrounds who come together to share their experiences about the unique role that Aboriginal women play in society, both historically and today.
Sista Act: Women of Country consists of Christine Egan, Elizabeth Hurrell, Tania Axleby-Blake, Kaylene Kerdel, Joanne Leonello, Rebecca Webb and Rachel Kerdel.
The musical concept of highlighting and honouring the significant roles and achievements of Aboriginal women since the 1960s was created by the women in 2007 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1967 referendum.  Sold out performances at the Bakehouse Theatre and the Space Theatre took the audience on a journey into the lives of Aboriginal women who strive to improve the lives of their people through their roles in the community and in the public sector.
When their songs, including the Acronym Song and Glad to be a Nunga became so popular, Sista Act: Women of Country found themselves in demand for new songs and performances and consequently a singing group was born.  Their unique songs honour all those who have walked before them and those who will continue to strive for human rights.
