Joe Geia - Freedom West Papua

Joe Geia - Freedom West Papua
Geia is a renowned singer/songwriter, guitarist, didgeridoo player and influential figure in the development of contemporary Indigenous music. He writes music of bravery and beauty, telling Aboriginal life in Australia.
Geia is perhaps best known for his song and album of the same name “Yil Lull”, regularly described as Australia’s unofficial Indigenous national anthem. “Yil Lull” has been covered by many of Australia’s best-known recording artists. He is widely regarded as a pioneer of contemporary Aboriginal music, first coming to prominence as a member of the influential Aboriginal band, No Fixed Address.Geia was also a key part and founding member of The Black Arm Band.
Stylistically Geia’s songs fit the category of roots music and range from simple Pacific songs to reggae, jazz and funk. The songs are written in Aboriginal language and English, and touch on universal themes as well as issues and history of Aboriginal Australia.

About this track...

My West Papuan brothers and sisters are close to my heart. West Papua is our closest neighbour and the world turns a blind eye to the genocide. The Freedom Flotilla in 2013 inspired me to write this song.
