Apakatjah - Down The Road

Apakatjah - Down The Road
Through its two band members Apakatjah combines the cultures of Aboriginal Australia (Pintupi-Luritja, Pitjantjatjara, Pertame Central Arrernte, Alywarre, Kaytitj and Islander), as well as heritage from European, Indonesian, Irish, Welsh and Dutch migrants.

The word ‘apakatjah’ is a Luritja kriol word for a person of mixed race heritage, which the duo have reclaimed to demonstrate the pride they have in their identity and to draw strength from their culture.

About this track...

With shades of pop-rock influences, the new single explores the pain of rejection at the hands of partners, family, or friends. It’s about facing your problems, picking yourself up, and being okay with going down new roads to find yourself again.
