SITE AS SONG - SONG AS SITE Constructions of meaning in on Aboriginal rock song

Issued Date: 6 Oct 2015


Peter Dunbar-Hall's article on the Warumpi Band contributes to the growing body of work into Aboriginal rock music and relates its study to recent debates within the field of cultural geography, with regard to the nature of place and space and their
relation to cultural product. In an important musical adoption of these concepts, Dunbar-Hall weaves together traditional Aboriginal thought and custom with western musicology and theory, producing a study that identifies the fundamental 'place~ness' of Aboriginal rock.
