The project came about through an innovative recycling and rubbish program, developed with elders in the local community of Muli Muli. Working with Tash Morton from North East Waste, they are developing a program to ‘clean up’ the community rubbish dump and implement a new recycling campaign to reduce waste, educate the local mob and protect cultural sites and country from pollution.
‘Breaking Habits’ is a funky, roots-inspired anthem from the local Original Nations community that hopes to raise awareness and educate people about the importance of caring for country.
The song also features vocalist Jennifer Williams – a local cultural leader, mentor, mother, educator and deadly Githabul woman.
This production was co-written by DPM staff Toby Finlayson, Michael Graham (MC Boomalli), a fantastic group of young people and staff from Woodenbong Central School. Music produced by Sydney - based music producer Josh ‘Hazy’ Nicholas, and mixed by his father, David Nicholas.
