Formatted Abstract/Summary
I first met Torres Strait Islander performer Lexine Solomon in 2004 while undertaking research for my PhD on the contemporary music performance practices of Indigenous Australian women. After I completed my thesis in 2006, Lexine asked me if I would collaborate on a project with her. We decided to focus on the experiences of Lexine’s fellow Torres Strait Islander women musicians and were successful in securing funding together. Over the last seven years, we have travelled across Australia together interviewing performers, presenting at conferences and writing articles. Our research relationship has grown into a strong friendship. We share a love of good food, music and laughter. My chapter draws on our experiences together as well as interviews undertaken with Lexine over the last seven years.
