In 2020 Foldback undertook our Regional Roots project and travelled to visit an incredibly talented singer-songwriter on her home country.
Casii Williams is a Western Aranda woman from the remote community of Hermannsburg in Central Australia. A third generation musician, she is the first woman in her family that has pursued a solo music career. Her first performance was at the age of 10 at the Yiperinga Festival to 20,000 people. She was only 14 when she released her first single. Her 2018 release ‘Fallin Down’ has earned airplay on Triple j unearthed and community radio.
We feel extraordinarily privileged to have been able to work with Casii on this project and thank her for allowing us into her home, and to share her incredible talent and music.
This is Casii performing her song ‘By My Side’
