Every year, Songlines recognises an emerging artist or group who have made an outstanding album, and winners of the Newcomer Award invariably go on to have bright futures. Mokoomba (pictured above) won the Award in 2013, and you can find out all about their latest project in the April 2017 issue (#126). Meanwhile, here on the Songlines website we've gathered together some fascinating features and interviews with other previous winners of this prestigious award.
