Australia: The Dreaming "Bugarrigarra"

Music of the world

Bugarrigarra" is the Yawuru word for the Dreaming — a matrix of creation that embodies the past, present and future. In this collection of songs, Jowandi, a Yawuru composer, singer and musician, invites other Aboriginal artists to tell the story of their people. Travel to the heart of the Australian continent, with songs accompanied on the didgeridoo (or "yidaki", a tube instrument made from a eucalyptus trunk or branch hollowed out by termites and played with the circular breathing technique) and the Kali boomerangs, a percussion instrument also cut from the branch or root of a eucalyptus tree, whose sharp strikes and rattles produce a unique sound that creates the pulse of the performance.
