Aminah performed in the Sydney Opera House at the age of sixteen before becoming a dedicated songwriter and performer at festivals around Australia.
As Irish journalist Kate Winter describes: “There was no distance at all between musicians and audience, with Aminah’s warm charisma drawing us all into a fantastical storyland of songs and poetry. This lady can sing. But she also tells wonderfully vivid tales with every lyric, every word. Tales of love and rebellion, campfires and warriors, the earth and the moon, injustice and freedom…I was transfixed, and the energy in the room was truly uplifting. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a gig before which rejuvenated my spirits quite so much. I felt hope. I felt immense pleasure and warmth in the core of me. And I felt an air of romance and possibility that hasn’t been awoken in me in a long time.”
She appeared on eleven albums in Australia and Europe before producing her debut solo album, Blue Wooden Boat.
