Description


It was country music that first gave Aboriginal Australians a voice in modern Australia. Country has always offered a vehicle for the dispossessed to tell their stories, and Aboriginal country music has a rich history, from the great pioneer Jimmy Little through Vic Simms, Harry and Wilga Williams, Bobby McLeod, Bob Randall and Isaac YaMma to Roger Knox and Kev Carmody, Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter. These pivotal figures and more are vividly captured in Clinton Walker's history. Hailed on publication as "an act of restitution" (Rhythms), a work that "traces new pathways into the songlines of a hidden and resonant Australian musical history" (The Age), Buried Country draws on the author's extensive research and in-person interviews. This new 3rd edition, a slightly expanded version of the 2014 updated 2nd edition, is illustrated with many rare photographs and memorabilia, and includes a full discography.
