Yolŋu Radio Records

ARDS is about to officially launch our new Record Label

Yolŋu Radio Records supports Aboriginal musicians across the top end. With a focus on developing music industry and business skills, we provide a pathway for community musicians to take the next step in getting their music recorded and available for sale.

Yolŋu Radio Records

About the label

Our recording studios provide a high quality home for the record label, which is a collective of some of the top end’s best producers, managers and musicians.

The Yolŋu Radio Records difference

We match a strong audience demand for more local Aboriginal music with the needs of the vast array of talented musicians across the top end.

Yolŋu (Yolngu) Radio Records is part of ARDS social enterprise arm - any profits are invested back into ARDS other community work. So by using our label services or purchasing music from us, you are supporting the empowerment of Aboriginal communities.
