Aboriginal Music

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

Aboriginal singers and bands are at the cutting edge of contemporary music in Australia. Many bands such as Yothu Yindi, Eastwind Journey and others hail from remote communities and include traditional instruments such as yidaki (didgeridu) and bilma (clapsticks) in their performances. Music attracts many young people and the industry is a large source of employment.
