Kankawa Nagarra (Olive Knight) - Purrku Purrku

Kankawa Nagarra (Olive Knight) - Purrku Purrku
Olive Knight, who also goes by her traditional name Kankawa Nagarra, is a Walmatjarri woman born in the desert. She is now a highly respected Elder in her community and an accomplished musician - a rare gem of incalculable cultural significance. Heroes & Laments: Walmatjarri Stories is Kankawa’s third and latest album. Featuring the formidable musical talents of Lucky Oceans, Steve Pigram, Dave Mann and more, the album is an exploration of desert blues from the unique perspective of a proud Walmatjarri woman. The album brings to light experiences of the Stolen Generation, of the Pintupi Nine, of fracking in the Kimberley, of hunting goannas on ancestral country, of an ancient language. This is Australian history being told from below: from the streets, from the desert, and from the heart.

About this track...

Lyrics written originally in Gooniyandi, my father’s tongue, but translated into Walmatjarri, for the traditional elders who take care of our land. We walk and live on our land, and we protect it.
