Ratja Yaliyali [pronounced Rart-ja yarl-i yarl-i] is a Yolngu Songline that translates to Vine of Love; a thread of love that keeps everything connected. When Yolngu people hear it they feel the spirit in their hearts and cry. If they have a problem or feel gloomy, they listen to Ratja Yaliyali as it touches them and builds their spirit back up making them stronger and brighter.
