Mamanta Crew - Paakatringa Waya

Mamanta Crew - Paakatringa Waya
The Mamanta Crew spans several generations, and includes young men, children, adults and elders from a remote island community in the NT.

'Paakatringa Waya' is a tuff, heavy, rap/reggae ballad that frames a conversation about serious social issues such as alcohol abuse, substance abuse, poverty and violence. It speaks of the importance of positive leadership and cultural revival as a key component to building a healthy, positive future for the Tiwi People.

This production was created over approximately 1 week (as part of a 5 week project), alongside a range of short films, vignettes, documentaries and stories called 'Tiwi TV'. These stories describe the life and conversations of the people of Milikapiti.

The track is written partially in English and partially in modern-day Tiwi, but our proudest achievement is that the chorus is written in 'old' Tiwi, as an effort to support an ancient language of this incredible community.

The track titled ‘Paakatringa Waya’ (Tiwi for 'the storm is no more') was produced by long-time DPM producer Josh Nicholas (aka 'Hazy') and directed, shot and edited by Toby Finlayson.
