Project Description

July 2014 – The Lurra Collective “One Songline”

Created as part of a collaborative storytelling project with the community of Maningrida, NT and Desert Pea Media, in partnership with The Smugglers Of Light Foundation and Maningrida College.

This song represents an ongoing conversation about the importance of story, songline, culture, education and connection to country. It is a journey of empowerment for the new generation of future leaders.

The country upon which this story was created is sacred. Bottom line. That vitality and strength echoes through this community, and all of the countrymen of Arnhem Land. Without country, water, story and connection, we are lost.

Featuring local community leader and absolute legend Joseph Diddo on vocals.

Protect Arnhem Land. No mining. Not now. Not ever.
