Music of Australia - Indigenous Music
Whe naboriginal people use the word country it means something different to what we think it means. For aboriginal people their country is their: Land, food, nature, stories, actions, rituals & overall everyday skills. The aboriginal people have to protect their country from being taken which was taken from them when the first fleet arrived in Australia. Their country means everything to them
Aboriginal instruments include the didgeridoo, the bullroarer, the gumleaf, the clapsticks, hand claps, rasp, rattle, percussion tube & the skin drum
