Archie Roach - Mulyawongk

Archie Roach - Mulyawongk
Archie Roach’s great love Ruby Hunter died too young in early 2010 and he was lost, gone.

Yet this chaos, pain and uncertainty has, through Archie’s rich, determined spirit, led to his most positive and celebratory suite of music yet: the joy and exuberance of much of Into The Bloodstream, his eighth studio album, is palpable. With the bad times subsiding, this new album is a joyous declaration of his new purpose and new resolve. This is uplifting music made against the odds.

His message for Aboriginal people and all Australians with a conscience, and also the message from him at this time in his life, is that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. For him even though the walk to personal, political or emotional freedoms might seem immense he knows it is still possible to reach a good end or at least find the will to fight for a good end.

Into the Bloodstream is a triumphant and courageous return. This is a man who lost everything then lost some more but he has been bold enough to come back to the stage and the spotlight and tell us what he has learned.

About this track...

The stunning album centrepiece Mulyawongk is equally concerned with the Murray river bunyip spirit from the Dreamtime as it is with the late Ruby Hunter, a Ngarrindjeri woman from the river country.
