Power of the voice, spear of the pen

Legendary musician the late Jimmy Little was a proud Yorta Yorta man, born on the banks of the Murray near Echuca and is remembered for his gentle soul and velvet voice.

However the legacy he’s left behind hasn’t just been in the music world. His massive contribution to improving Aboriginal health through the Jimmy Little Foundation which he personally financed will  always be remembered.

Lou Bennett is another internationally known Yorta Yorta musician and actor, best known for being the lynchpin of the legendary female band Tiddas. During its 10 years, the band became the only all female group to win an ARIA award.

Andrea Fraser of NungaWangga chatted to Lou about the influences of the late Jimmy Little on her life and career. She began by asking Lou about the first time she met Jimmy Little.
