Water through music
Freshwater women and music duo Kaleena Briggs and Nardi Simpson, the Stiff Gins, are Indigenous singers and songwriters from NSW.
Listen to their song ‘River Song’ and discuss the following:
Compare and contrast this song with Neil Murray and George Burarrwanga’s song ‘My Island Home” sung by the Warumpi Band about the experiences of a Saltwater man being off Country in Alice Springs thinking of his home. In what ways are the songs similar and how are they different?
How does listening to these two songs explain the importance of and connection to Country for First Nations peoples?
