Iwantja are from the heart of the desert country of the Anangu itjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands of Central Australia. Some say Palya is as much a landmark as Big Name, No Blankets (Warumpi band) was with its breakthrough use of Indigenous language married to a wide range of musical styles.


The stylistic variation in Palya's twelve tracks, from ballads to psychedelic instrumentals to hip-hop stylings to desert reggae are the mark of a band that is supremely confident of its abilities and burning to prove what they can do-which is pretty much anything.
