In the Music Real E110, Nicki chats with Sam Cook, multi award winning, multi-talented arts and entertainment professional based in LA. Sam is the Founder and CEO, KMBA Agency and has just joined the board of Australian Music Alliance. Sam is a cross-artform practitioner, educator, arts manager and leader in Indigenous Arts, was the founder of Australia’s Blak History Month, a director of The Dreaming Festival and a programmer of the Woodford Folk Festival. We talk about what life is like for her in LA, not being able to return to Australia, opportunities in the industry as a result of the forced lockdowns and the role that the Australia Music Alliance will play in the recovery of our industry across the Pacific.
