Summary
  • Indigenous communities across Australia are currently experiencing a high level of renewed interest in their song traditions as the present generation of songmen and songwomen take on the responsibilities of their ancestors. Recirculating songs gives voice to these contemporary performers, and looks at the issues they face in learning and passing on their ancestral musical practices in the 21st century. This book is the first of its kind to be devoted specifically to the strategies Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are adopting to keep their traditional music alive and strong. At the same time, it introduces the wider public to Australia's rich Indigenous musical heritage, through a series of case studies focused on particular communities or regions.
