Description 

Long before Aboriginal painters, film-makers and dance companies were becoming household names, generations of Indigenous musicians were finding a voice in white Australia through country music.

When Clinton Walker began delving into this forgotten history, he could never have expected that the songs and stories he would uncover would go on to inform a book that went from instant cult classic to widely recognised masterpiece, and that a film and album would follow.

Now these same musical stories are brought to the stage in Darwin Festival's opening night concert.
