Walpa Warri by Tjintu Desert Band

Our Music

Added by CAAMA Music

Description This track features on the debut album by Tjintu Desert Band 'Tjamuku Ngurra' and the recently released 'Snapshot III' compilation album by Aboriginal record label CAAMA Music.

This music video was made by CAAMA Productions - directed by the young Aboriginal film trainee Micha Bartlett and shot by Vincent Lamberti.

The music video features Jeffrey Zimran, lead guitarist of Tjintu Desert Band, overcoming isolation and temptation on his quest to find his way home.

Walpa Warri means 'cold wind' in the Aboriginal language of Luritja spoken in the Western Desert of Central Australia. The song opens with the sounds of the desert and the cold, lonely wind. This song grooves along with a laid back reggae drum and bass feel, featuring a harmony-layered chorus. The lead break mirrors the shape and uplifting motion of the vast and beautiful ranges in Central Australia.
