Carissa is a Yorta Yorta Dja Dja Wurrung singer/songwriter and storyteller based on Boonwurrung Country on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia.

Carissa expresses her stories through singing in language as well as taking you on a journey to a place where you can feel her deep connection to her ancestral roots.

Her love for being out on Country mixed with stories of her family and culture make for some raw and real acoustic songs that come straight from the soul.

Carissa has just released her second single, Wanyarra, a song for water in Dja Dja Wurrung Language and has recently supported Ash Grunwald at Shed Sessions for Hills are Alive, Liz Stringer at the Croxton, Lisa Mitchell at the Meeniyan Town Hall, Dan Sultan & John Butler for the Thin Green Line Foundation.
