Description

Indigenous music in Australia is broad, dynamic and diverse, spanning traditional styles, country and western, reggae, pop, rock, hip hop and a vibrant mash up of all of these and more. Importantly its contribution to Indigenous self-expression and strength and society's understanding of Aboriginal lives and issues is second to none. This excellent program looks at the many new and diverse forms of music, and the trailblazers who paved the way for innovative and varied contemporary Aboriginal sounds. It examines the early beginnings of choir and country, to hip hop, funk and rap, featuring interviews with stars Tjimba Possum Burns, Peter Rotumah, Joe Geia, Albury Maher and Shane Howard. It examines and clearly explains songs as Indigenous expression, as stories that must be told, the role of non-indigenous musicians raising awareness and the future of Indigenous music via new technologies such as MySpace, Facebook, and the downloadable MP3 files.
