MUSIC VIDEO RELEASE: fRANK YAMMA -Tjintu kutu (Jinku mix)
To celebrate one year since the release of Frank Yamma's double release of Tjukurpa: The Story and The Kulila Project, we are excited to release the new music video for 'Tjintu Kutu (Jinku Mix)'.
This track was a highlight of The Kulila Project and was a previously unreleased recording which was remixed by EA Wave's Jinku. Jinku’s treatment of ‘Tjintu Kutu’ turns Frank’s vocals into a haunting refrain accompanied by atmospheric and sparse beats.
This evocative clip edited by Matej Kolmanko features footage generously provided by Rebecca McLean, the producer of Nganampa Manta - The 25th Anniversary of Land Rights on the APY Lands SA.
Kolmanko expressively weaves footage for this 25th-anniversary celebration shot on Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara land by David Nixon and Shane Mulcahy with footage from Kintore and surrounds shot by Paul Sweeney as well as extra video from Rex Guthie.
BLACK ROCK BAND RELEASE tHEIR SECOND ALBUM IDENTITY
Wantok Musik proud to release the new album from Black Rock Band, Identity.
The group from remote West Arnhem Land use music to celebrate their connection to Country, their fight for social justice, and the future they want to see for the next generation. Featuring the previously released singles 'Red Black & Yellow' and 'If It Was Me', this dynamic album is a true celebration of culture and storytelling.
"This album is a reflection for us all to think about and maintain our culture and our language. We created the album to encourage First Nations people across Australia and around the world to stick together. This is building a bridge between the two different worlds we live in" - Richie Guymala, Black Rock Band
Identity is available now in stores, on streaming services, and on Bandcamp
