Jessie Lloyd | Australia

 

Discover a unique trove of contemporary Australian Indigenous songs and stories unearthed by singer/songwriter Jessie Lloyd. From the missions and camps that became home to generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, these songs are a rare cultural cache that fused Western and Indigenous musical cultures, performed live by a top-shelf line-up of Indigenous artists.

The songs Lloyd rediscovered – many never heard outside mission walls or camp boundaries – are a unique window into the experiences of Indigenous communities in the 20th century.

In particular, Lloyd’s quest to connect with the events of the 1957 Palm Island Strike, led by her grandfather Albie Geia, reveals the ways in which the music and stories of the elders continue to resonate today.
