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.

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.
