Traditional aboriginal song and culture

Originally made for abc radio in 2001, this program draws on talks between Jimmy Djamunba (song and lore-man from Yolngu country in northern Australia - and me, PM .. these continuing to this day 20 years later!

Illustrated with examples of trad/'mixed' song, the discussion seeks a little more 'story' of our tradional longest-time living with this continent

Both JD and PM had been playing, recording and touring together in 'Waak waak Jungi' - along with other members of the group - by the time that this program was produced

We have placed a copy of the entire broadcast here .. an 'uncompressed' version of the work is available .. email me
