about

"Yamani - Voices of an Ancient Land" is a community project between the Queensland Indigenous Languages Advisory Committee (QILAC) and Wantok Musik.

Through their work together the members of QILAC have become close friends and found a collective passion for music.

The women decided to each bring a song in their language to share at one meeting. This musical gathering highlighted the importance of contemporary song in sharing language and encouraging family language use.

It lead to a professional recording with award-winning composer David Bride and Wantok Musik Foundation, which aims to empower all Indigenous Australian’s to sing in their languages.

QILAC Chairperson Joy Bonner says, “We each shared songs in our languages with the others. We sing together in five languages, so we had to teach our language and learn the other four languages. “It has been a wonderful, challenging and joyful experience which truly shows the power for music for sharing language.”
