Nitmiluk: An Aboriginal Rock Song about a Place

Peter Dunbar-Hall


A study of the musical and textual profiles of 'Ntimiluk' by Aboriginal rock group, Blekbala Mujik, revealing that there is more to the song than the commemoration in its lyrics of the hand-back of land to its owners. Here the song is seen as a statement, through references to land, of identity, and linked to this, agendas of Jawoyn cultural revival and self-determination.
