The title track celebrated the rediscovery of lost ancestral values by urban-dwelling Aborigines. With her deep husky voice and folk style, Hunter offers unique insights from the perspective of an older Aboriginal woman — especially noteworthy given the silence that Aboriginal women can be bound to in traditional contexts.
The rise of female Aboriginal performers has greatly broadened the perspective of Australian indigenous music. The Torres Strait archipelago is made up of over a hundred islands.
Its first inhabitants are believed to have migrated from Indonesia thousands of years ago, when there was still a land bridge between New Guinea and Australia.
The colony of Queensland officially annexed the islands in , but they have maintained their own distinct culture and identity, with strong links to both the mainland Aboriginal people and the tribal groups of New Guinea. Rita began performing solo in , and died in Like young people all over the world, in recent years many young Aborigines have been attracted to hip-hop.
Adapted to their own culture and environment, hip-hop has encouraged a whole new generation of indigenous Australian musicians to come forward. Over the years there have been numerous musical partnerships between black and white Australian musicians. While Yothu Yindi and Warumpi Band are the best-known examples, a couple of others deserve special mention. Warren H. The careers of several other white Australian musicians have been closely associated with indigenous issues. Multicultural Australia has also become the adopted home for a substantial number of first- and second-generation migrant musicians from around the world.

Nearly every song feels like a memory you forgot you had. Not Drowning, Waving is a beautiful band name derived from a Stevie Smith poem with correspondingly beautiful and poetic music. They also manage to accomplish the interesting feat of making complex music sound so pleasingly simple. On days like today, when the world needs beauty more than ever in the face of unimaginable tragedy, I thank Not Drowning, Waving for making music to get lost in.
Sometimes, things come to you just when you need them, and Claim did that for me. The first half of the album strikes a really interesting balance between the power ballad melodies and song structure of , but without the heavy percussion, over-the-top vocals and pretentious guitar solos.
The second half of the album takes a turn toward the hypnotic, tribal rhythms of their native Australia. This is a snotty American giving thanks for the trip. The prolific David Bridie in all his emblematic art rock glory. Imagine that the beam coming from the left is a musical genre. In the second half of the 20th century, as rock swept the globe, musicians near and far tried their hands at this new style, each bringing a different set of prior experiences and traditions to the table.
That one beam turned into a rainbow of rock. Claim sounds a little like that process being reversed — sending the rainbow back through the prism to find what a particular range of colors have in common. While the production of Claim might come off a little dated, I think it holds up way better than most records of this time period.
