Percustard Oz Folk Tunes Aboriginal Influences (12) RE: Oz Folk Tunes Aboriginal Influences 30 Jul 02

Folk Tunes that is.

There are millions of authentic cultural songs and tunes that should remain with the peoples that originated them.

I am after songs tunes that are an amalgam of european and aboriginal music.

That is to say, I am not out to appropriate indiginous materials. I am keen, however, to highlight any musical collaborations, song fusions, cross pollinations, that have occurred between the "invaders" and the original "owners" of Australian lands over the past 300 years in Australia.

In other words reconciliation via music not division by appropriation.

Any ideas appreciated.
