End of the Corrugated Road
A dynamic history of the legendary Warumpi Band who for 20 years told the stories of Indigenous Australia in their lyrics. From the classic "My Island Home" to the raw "From The Bush" the Warumpi band has interpreted and translated contemporary Aboriginal life.
They are perhaps the most influential of all the enduring Indigenous artists. 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. They are also outstanding interview talent. George is full of stories from his Top End home on Elcho Island and Neil has a laconic attitude of having lived through personal reconciliation twenty years before it started.
The Warumpi project has been shot by outstanding Indigenous Director of Photography Allan Collins who followed them on the road and in their vehicles to their last concert at Stompem Ground in Broome. A veritable treasure of archival performance and interview material has been gathered to enhance the piece.
