Message Stick - End of the Corrugated Road
The legendary Warumpi Band have told the stories of indigenous Australia in their lyrics for over 20 years. From the classic 'My Island Home' to the raw 'From The Bush' they have interpreted contemporary Aboriginal life.
The band broke up, after 20 years together, in October 2000. Over the years the song-writing team of Neil Murray and George Djilanga have had a huge amount to say about Australia and the Aboriginal world. George is full of stories from his Top End home on Elcho Island and Neil has a laconic attitude, having lived through personal reconciliation for twenty years before it became a buzz word.
The Warumpi project has been shot by outstanding indigenous director of photography Allan Collins who followed them on the road to their last concert at the Stompem Ground Festival in Broome. A veritable treasure of archival performance and interview material has been gathered to enhance this program.
Suitable for Performing Arts studies.
