Description:
3 Arrernte healing songs and charms sung by MKTurner. Includes MKTurner discussing the context in which these songs are sung and the words in these song texts.
The classical song traditions of Western Arnhem Land are amongst the foremost examples of verbal art in the nine endangered languages of the region, but few people are now competent to perform or comment on them. Typically performed in multi-lingual social contexts, song texts demonstrate unusual linguistic features such as mixtures of languages and a high proportion of esoteric and intimate vocabulary. We will collect, transcribe, translate and analyse song texts and discussions about songs by contemporary performers, and where relevant repatriate and document archival recordings, making our research results available to communities via a network of local digital repositories.
Songs performed with accompanying activities to heal people or stop a certain event, or alter the environment in particular ways.
