Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Hip Hop :: The Mob - Courage and Excellence

The Mob - Courage and Excellence

The Mob - Courage and Excellence
'Courage and Excellence' is about breaking stereotypes. Having the courage to defy expectations and create a positive and respectful future for yourself and your community.

Written, recorded and filmed over 5 days in March 2016 in the remote community of Walgett in Northwest NSW, 'Courage and Excellence' is an outcome of a Desert Pea Media community project with a group of young Indigenous people enrolled at Walgett Community College.

The project came about through a partnership between Desert Pea Media, The Smugglers of Light Foundation and APRA AMCOS.

Desert Pea Media projects involve a dialogue-based storytelling process that encouraged participants to analyze 'the real', 'the ideal' and 'the bridge'. In simple terms this means critically thinking about how to create positive change for individuals, for each other and for our communities.

With the musical direction of Joel 'Roc West' Westlake, mentoring from previous DPM participant - Kamileroi hip-hop artist Michael Graham (aka MC Boomalli) and project direction from DPM founder - Toby Finlayson, we then turned the narrative into this awesome song, which we filmed immediately on location around Walgett.

Special thanks to DPM mentor and community elder - Ros McGregor for her unwavering support and friendship over 10 years.

About this track...

This song is one of those rare positive, uplifting stories from remote Indigenous Australia. Desert Pea Media productions are developed to empower and inspire both audience and storyteller alike. Listen in and join the movement.
