Marloo’s Blues
Opening performance by SHAMIN

“The life Marlene has lived is closer to the life of original blues singers like Muddy Waters than any contemporary American blues artist”.– RICHARD FIELD, PRODUCER

Marlene Cummins is a saxophonist, activist and proud Guguyelandji, and Woppaburra woman. She knows the blues from an Aboriginal woman’s perspective.

In the tradition of legendary blues women Big Mama Thornton and Bessie Smith, Marlene’s story is one of vulnerability, strength and survival.
