Waak Waak ga Min Min

We have been both pleasantly surprised and gratified - by the reception the re-release of our (1997) cd by 'waak waak djungi' group is currently receiving .. 

 

The most often heard question concerning this music I hear is 'why have we not ever heard of the music and culture (songs about place, spirit, birds, trees ..) before' ? 

Good question .. may we all come to realise more of the interconnecting nature of all our 'old' traditional culture-philosophies

Please know that one of the singers in the group died in 2007, whilst a 'suitable' time has passed since his demise, we continue to respect his continuing influence
