Which way Countrymen? Well the NIMA’s were recently
held on the 6th August at the Darwin amphitheatre NT to
celebrate Indigenous music. There was a great line up of
the biggest and brightest Indigenous stars to perform to
an adoring crowd. Audiences were wowed by great stand
out performances from Khal Wallis (The Medics), Shellie
Morris, Warren H Williams, Yirrmal and rising star Chris
Tamwoy plus many more.
This year’s theme was Protest Song’s, as we are
celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the Wave Hill
Walk Off and the 40th anniversary of the Land Rights
Act. Some of my personal favourite protests songs are
“We Have Survived” – No Fixed Address, “Blackfella
Whitefella” – Warumpi Band, “Dirty Dollar” Kev Carmody
and the new hit from Mau Power “Freedom”. These songs
have been a part of the movement for a long time and
have helped to create a positive change in our society. It’s
been 30 years since the release of Yothu Yindi’s ground
breaking album “Tribal Voice” and 25 years since their hit
single “Treaty” topped the charts and exploded around
the world, the song is still relevant today.
It was heartwarming to see brother Kutcha Edwards be
honoured and acknowledged by being inducted into
the Hall Of Fame, his journey as a Songman has been
amazing to watch and get inspired by. The big winner
on the night was Gurrumul, taking home the Artist of
the Year award for the 5th time, other winners included
New Talent – Gawurra, Song of The Year – The Children
Came Back – Briggs, Film Clip – Ratja Yaliyali – Gawurra,
Traditional Song – Two Sisters – Ishmael Marika and
Album of the Year Gawurra. Highlight performances at
this years NIMA’s were Gawurra with his version of “Solid
Rock” the Goanna classic, Kalh Wallis with his solo single
“Children Of The Revolution”, Shellie Morris with a song
she wrote about 2 men that lost their land to bullies
“Man Of The Land”. Chris Tamwoy did a great spiritual
version of “My Island Home” and NT Artist David Spry
belted out the Midnight Oil classic “Beds Are Burning”,
just when the audience thought things couldn’t get any
better YouTube sensations Djuki Mala hit the stage with
an awesome choreographed dance piece to the sounds of
“Treaty” that just brought the house down.
It’s wonderful to see Indigenous Music in such a powerful
place at the moment and to see the young artists coming
through the ranks and taking over the responsibility of
making meaningful music.
A special mention to Roy Marika who is regarded as
the ‘Father of Land Rights”, there was a huge Bunggul
(dance) by the Rirratjingu clan to pay respects to him.
People to watch: Briggs is on the rise and has such a
unique way of rapping and writing songs. He is going to
be an important messenger for our people.
Another to keep an eye on is young Yolgu singer/
songwriter Yirrmal, people are touting him as the next
Gurrumul and the future of Indigenous music. It’s a big
call, but one that I believe Yirrmal will embrace and live
up to! All the best until next time.

at a certain kind of mid-Twentieth Century
jet-set kitsch, so be it.”
