This panel discussion brings together innovators in renewing song practices from around NSW across Dharug, Ngarigu, Ngiyampaa, Wiradjuri, and Yuwaalaraay language groups. In their work on song renewal, the panellists draw on historical sources, living memories in community, attentiveness to the sounds of Country, and shared knowledges to reawaken language and song practices disrupted by colonisation. The panellists will bring their musical and linguistic expertise to this public discussion of lessons learned and ways forward for song renewal. They are at the forefront of reconnection with songs that have been sung for millennia in the place now known as New South Wales.
The panel is supported by the ARC Discovery Project ‘Hearing the Music of Early NSW’.
