She Cried

Our Music

Added by Wantok Musik

Description Frank Yamma is a traditional Pitjantjatjara man from Australia's Central Desert and speaks five languages. An extraordinary songwriter and an exceptional guitarist, Frank also has an incredible voice which is rich, deep and resonant.

Regarded by many as one of Australia’s most important Indigenous songwriters, Yamma’s brutally honest tales of alcohol abuse, cultural degradation, respect for the old law and the importance of country are spine tingling. Frank has the ability to cross cultural and musical boundaries and constantly sets new standards through his music.

Frank Yamma's 'Countryman' was recorded at an isolated run-down country house in Taralga near Goulburn, 'Countryman' is an album full of great songs of longing, romance and immense beauty.

'She Cried' is a harrowing, heartbreaking story of too many people living on the streets of Alice, Port Augusta or Adelaide – losing their culture, drinking too much, no-one to look out for them. A woman in trouble is looking for a way to kill the pain, trying to find another way out.
