Karen’s most recent recordings her 7th studio album Solid Ground (karenknowles.com.au/solidground) and 8th studio album Sanctuary represent a new soft connected musical direction featuring new compositions dedicated to Mother Earth. Solid Ground includes three authorised sacred songs of the Wirradjirri people that Karen is honoured to have been asked to record by Min Mia (Wirradjirri elder and lore carrier). The recordings enable these sacred songs to be stewarded, and at Min Mia’s request, gifted to the women of Australia and then shared and sung by the people of the world for the benefit of all of creation.
