AbstractHistoryArchive Description

For the Indigenous people of Australia, song, dance and music have encoded their history and religion, their social organisation, and their connectedness to the land. An outline of the evolution of Aboriginal country and western and rock music situates the discussion within an historical context in which music has been expressive of Aboriginal peoples' political struggles and in particular the love of and connection to, and loss and reclamation of their land.
