Aboriginal Music Group from Australia: Black Arm Band
Black Arm Band is a group of some of the best-known music artists of Aboriginal Australia. Their piece: Dirtsong, giving homage to Australia’s land and spirit, has won worldwide acclaim.
If one understands the destruction of the Aboriginal communities that are ongoing in Australia, from the colonial period and continuing through today, we can understand the intense feelings, connected to land and memory, invoked in these presentations that have touched millions around the world.
