I’ve been to Alice Springs to work on a new project, Ilyawe, and in this episode I introduce the project in the context of social justice in Music Education. You can find out much more about the project at its website, www.ilyaweproject.com. There is a longer version of this podcast at https://humberstone.org/?p=1219 with more background about the plight of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians – this version is child-friendly.
The Hip-Hop song in this episode is not from Ilyawe (the music for this new project is just being written!), but from another youth Hip-Hop project I’ve been working on since 2016, Odysseus : Live, with producer Jordan Thomas Mitchell, and poet/MC Luka Lesson. The children’s work that you can hear midway through the podcast is my Today is Tomorrow Beginning (2016), performed by middle schools students of MLC School in the Sydney Town Hall.
