Hidden away in one of the most remote locations in Australia in the Marlinja Community, NT, Rayella finally bring their debut album to an awaiting worldwide audience. Their lyrics deliver a journey into the heartbeat of Australia’s centre filled with tales of life and history from the Indigenous Mudburra people’s homeland. Expressed through a crafty blend of genres including pop, country, rock and reggae and presented in a mix of both Mudburra and English language, their engaging, eclectic style appeals to a wide audience.
“Eleanor and Raymond’s father/daughter vocal frontline lend authenticity to their stories of life, aspirations and place… Their music is a deep blend of modern life and ancient energy”
Brian Ritchie – Violent Femmes, Curator Mona Foma Festival.
“ ..the most enjoyable introduction to a new band — and great new songwriting talents — that I’ve seen and heard in many years.”
Bob Gosford – The Daily Review – Crikey.com.au
