Apakatjah - Irriti Nyinapayi

Apakatjah - Irriti Nyinapayi
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 a slight hint of “dessert reggae” and their signature acoustic guitar riffs to drive the song home the duo fuse English lyrics and escape with their traditional language to create a contemporary yet ancestry rich masterpiece.
