Our Music

Added by Oz Outback

Description Blekbala Mujik (Kriol for "Blackfellow Music") was a very successful band of Aboriginal musicians, with founding member and leader Peter Miller. Hailing from Barunga, an Aboriginal community just south of Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia, they combined pop, rock and reggae with traditional Aboriginal chant and dance, using clapsticks and didjeridu together with western instruments. "Nitmiluk" is the area nearby, traditional lands of the Jawoyn people and also the name of the National Park around Katherine Gorge. The song finishes with traditional dancing; at their concert at the Barunga Festival, 11 June 1995.
