Irwarpaup ft. Tamyok & Desert Pea Media - Small Island, Big Fight

Irwarpaup ft. Tamyok  & Desert Pea Media - Small Island, Big Fight
Ten indigenous communities. Eleven tracks & videos. One amazing album.

‘Song Nation Vol.1’ is a compilation of original Hip Hop music and online videos celebrating the very much alive and vibrant Indigenous contemporary culture across regional and remote areas of Australia and Torres Straits Islands.

Completely independent and unlike anything in the industry, Desert Pea Media known for their unique dialogue-driven song writing workshop process, under the cultural supervision of Aunty Gail Mabo (Eddie Mabo’s daughter) have created one of the most exciting and culturally significant albums in recent times.

‘We’re hoping to demonstrate to young people that their voices are relevant and their stories important; that they have the capacity to shape their own future and that people are listening. We’ re hoping to demonstrate to communities that their young are proud of their cultural heritage and in their stories and voices is held the hope for
the future of Indigenous Australia.’ - Toby Finlayson, Desert Pea Media Founder

The Song Nation project was born from the collaboration between Desert Pea Media and The Smugglers Of Light Foundation, then evolving into a partnership program including APRA, UNLtd and a range of schools and community organisations from across the country.

About this track...

This song is dedicated to Eddie ‘Koiki’ Mabo, to his family and to all of the Meriam tribal groups. A tribute to the ongoing struggle for Indigenous rights in the region, and a celebration of Meriam culture – past, present and future.
