Today we were lucky to have members from the Tiwi Islands Strong Women’s Group in the studio to sing live for us.  They travelled all the way from the far north of Australia treating us to the traditional Tiwi Islands take on 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' and performing 'Crab Turtle Crocodile'.

We spoke to Eustace Tipiloura and Mary Elizabeth Moreen, traditional owners of Milikarparti land and Genevieve Campbell director of the Tiwi + Jazz project.
