Movements and Sounds - Episode 1: Interview with Dobby Wed, 2022-01-05 17:42

This podcast has been brought to life as part of Charlotte Schuitenmaker’s PhD Thesis on contemporary Indigenous musics in Australia, investigating the relations between activism, urbanism, and Indigeneity through music. Instead of using interviews for just her thesis, Charlotte wants to share the interviews with you. The stories are important, and this way they are more accessible.

Please be advised that this podcast contains names of deceased persons.

This episode’s guest is Dobby. Dobby is a Filipino and Muruwari musician in Australia. He plays the drums, he plays piano, and he raps on top of that. Dobby has released several singles, an EP, and he is always involved in various musical and cultural projects.
