Respectively coming from the Yorta Yorta and Ngarrindjeri tribes, Briggs and Trials are socially conscious outspoken Indigenous artists. They bring a new voice to Australian hip hop as A.B. Original. Their debut album 'Reclaim Australia' recently won the 2017 Australian Music Prize. Don’t miss the chance to hear it live when they take to the Splendour stage.
