"A book review of Songman written by Alan Baillie. Suitable for Year 7 students. Yukuwa gets a taste of the world outside the land of the Yolngu when the visiting Macassans return to their foreign homeland with Yukuwa and his father Dawu, in order to teach them how to make canoes.  Yukuwa soon realises there is a whole other world outside his simple land as he encounters new cultures, traditions and general ways of life."

Kate Reitzenstein's curator insight, April 26, 2015 11:55 PM

Written on the sleeve of the Garma album that the song "was inspired by an old tamarind tree and Macassan fireplace at Gunyangara, a site visited by Trepang fishermen from southern Sulawesi for hundreds of years before European occupation. It refers to stories passed down through generations about the route taken by the Trepangers, stories that have been woven into Yolgnu lore"
