Singing the Coast - Margaret Somerville & Tony Perkins

 

A unique and inviting record, this volume explores the Aboriginal Gumbaynggirr people’s experience in maintaining the stories and songs of their New South Wales homeland. By taking up the metaphor of singing to capture a quality of voice, this remarkable record examines the particular qualities inherent in the coastal group’s songs and considers their universal sense of knowledge, understanding, and openness. This revelatory compilation is an indispensable read for those interested in understanding more about Aboriginal culture and engaging with the landscape.
