Aimed at being an exercise in acceptance, this project was created with the intention of celebrating he many clan groups of Maningrida, NT. This diversity is a huge part of what makes this particular community so rich vibrant, but a so a source of conflict and unrest.
The song features five separate traditional ‘bungul’ songs (60,000 year old ceremonial songs) from of main language groups in Maningrida – acknowledging and celebrating the entire community.
The outcome is a remarkable piece of contemporary and historical significance that articulates all languages. Deemed by the elders as an opportunity to support healing and promote strength in diversity for the youth of the community.
Featuring Declan Kely (Declan Kelly & The Rising Sun) on drums and Matt Smith (The Strides, Thirsty Merc) on guitar.
The first verse - written by local songwriter and cultural leader Victor Rostron recognizes and lists all the major language groups in the community.
