We explore the creative process behind ‘Magic Woman Dancing’ and glimpse into the exciting future ahead for Emily Wurramara

Nipaluna/Hobart artist and proud Warnindhilyagwa woman, Emily Wurramara, dropped into Happy Mag to discuss her latest single, ‘Magic Woman Dancing.’

Beyond the catchy melody and captivating visuals lies a song born from slow creation – the antithesis of fast fashion.

Emily peels back the layers of ‘Magic Woman Dancing,’ revealing the inspiration and celebrating self-expression’s liberating power.

Collaborating with the talented Kuya James, Emily’s decade-long journey culminates in a sonic masterpiece, blending Western-tinged guitar with driving drums and textured synths.

‘Magic Woman Dancing’ invites listeners on a journey of self-discovery, exploring themes of female empowerment, defying societal expectations, and embracing the transformative power of individuality.

As we delved into the intricacies of the video-making process, Emily’s profound generosity, beautiful spirit, and passion for collaboration, industry dynamics, and personal evolution left an indelible impression.

Emily is set to headline a special gig at Waywards on April 5th, showcasing tracks from her upcoming album alongside some special guests. Accompanied by a full band for the first time, including Kuya James on bass, the performance promises a unique experience for local audiences.

In addition to this, she will be performing at Ride The Wave, A Festival Called Panama, and The Gum Ball.
