Product Description

In the past decade music made by Aboriginal artists has enjoyed unprecedented levels of success in Australia. Here is a representative sample of the rich diversity - from country through folk to rock - of the music that has been used as a vital artistic medium to explore important issues ranging from land rights and the 'stolen generations' to colonial dispossession and racism.

I didn't know what to expect from this CD, apart from the sound of the didjeridoo:that was there, of course, plus plenty more. There are tracks of traditional music collected in the field, and then modern tracks produced in the recording studio. Whatever your interest in Australian music, there should be something on this CD for you, if you have an appetite for a wide spectrum of musical genres.

I was prepared to be open minded in my search for music to enhance the mood on our tour of Australia. I didn't particularly like this CD on first hearing but some of the more contemporary tracks grew on me and are quite catchy. I'm imagining the sun rising in Alice Springs to the almost haunting sound of Celebration, arriving at Uluru to the beat of Tjapukai Sunset or driving the Great Ocean Road to the on-my-way style track Kurongk Boy, Kurongk Girl. Add some Aussie Bush Band, Ralph McTell (Red Sky) and Sir Rolf and you will be on your way to a half decent compilation to reminisce over when you get back.

Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD for my daughter who's a A-level Dance student. With the idea that it would provide the soundtrack music for her Choreography exam. And for that, this CD wasn't the ideal purchase.

What we have here is a cross-section of Aboriginal music - encompasing a bit of everything. Which I guess is good, if you're hoping to experience the whole spectrum of the genre.

However, if you're looking for - let's say, a tourist's eye on this. A CD full of what we quintessentially think is Aboriginal music, then this CD probably isn't for you. The familiar, popular styles are here, but represent less than half the tracks.

So if you're thinking of purchasing this CD to provide the background music for your home video of OZ, I'd suggest look elsewhere. On the other hand - if you already know this scene well, then I'm sure you will appreciate the eclectic fine quality recordings found here.

Fantastic! 27 Jun 2009
By Maestra 028 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nice variety of tracks and instruments; male and female vocals. I'm extremely impressed with the notes as well as the "extras". This version contains a data track, some Rough Guide book content, a competition and other items on the CD if you stick it in the computer. Very thorough!

Abo CD 1 Mar 2006
By Lawrence A. Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the only "authentic" Aboriginal CD of the bunch. The others didn't include the folk music. Nice collection of music.
