Guest Biographies

The Ancient Bloods are a Meanjin/Brisbane-based band with an ever-changing line up of musicians. Their music projects are presented as a part of leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts organisation, Digi Youth Arts. Their current iteration is made up of Gaz Doolah, Gill McInnes, Emelia Stacy, and Shaieisha Towler. Each Ancient Bloods' song and album adds to an anthology that responds to political issues, cultural heritage, and identity.

Part-performance art, part-punk outfit, Dolphin Milk is a collaboration between artists Sarah (Lewis) and Grace Dewar, based in the Mibiny language region/Gold Coast and Widjabul Wia-bal/Lismore. They use experimental sound, performance, installation and friendship to engage with the savagely benign. Their collaborative projects assemble and reassemble everyday, contemporary culture as a way to understand and misunderstand their surroundings.

Maggitron is a Meanjin/Brisbane-based DJ who is a fixture on the local dance floors. Sharing music from the club to the 4ZZZ airwaves, Maggitron's blends are booty-bumping, ass-shaking and unmistakably hot.
