Album Notes

The Kimberley region of northern Western Australia is home to an aboriginal group known as the Wunambul people. This fascinating musical document introduces the world to their native music, in this case 16 initiation-rite songs, as well as ballads concerning other aspects of aboriginal life. The music is performed by Lorrie and Daisy Utemorrah, Louis and Rosie Karadada, and Jeffery and Louise Mangoamara, with vocals, clap sticks, and that distinctively aboriginal instrument, the didgeridoo. This collection is both educational and musically rich, and a unique contribution to the world music canon.
