Against a history of pain and exploitation Aboriginal artists have now arrived as a powerful force in contemporary music and one bound up with the struggle for land rights and an end to discrimination. Politics is always on the agenda in the world of contemporary Aboriginal music, but so, too is an element of spirituality. Theirs are the songs that make contact with a history of 50,000 years, the oldest intact civilisation on the planet. The Rough Guide to Australian Aboriginal Music is an introduction to past and present Aboriginal voices that are once again uniting songs and music to be a binding cultural and creative force in their rich culture.
