Talented singer-songwriters and captivating aboriginal musicians from the outback come together on this fascinating journey to the land down under. Includes a recipe for Lamingtons, a traditional Australian dessert cake.
Australia features exceptional musicians whose songs reflect the broad diversity of cultures and international music that have influenced the country. Known by affectionate nicknames such as “The land down under” and “OZ,” Australia is home to surreal landscapes, unique flora and fauna and mystical indigenous cultures. Its fertile pop, country and rock music scene has bred scores of international stars. The compositions on this collection represent some of the cultural songlines connecting the people of Australia and the rest of the world. Putumayo will contribute 1% of its sales of this CD to Yalari, a non-profit organization providing secondary school scholarships to Australian indigenous children from remote areas of Australia.
