CAAMA Music’s Therrka Endangered Languages project was recently featured on Dan Browning’s AWAYE! program on ABC Radio National.
Interviewer (Rudi Bremer):
Has writing songs in Jingili and doing this project with CAAMA, has it made you think about Jingili language in a different way?
Yes, absolutely, it’s got me thinking about how important my language is… how important this is. It is like a door opening… I just took a chance, one shot, to help bring this language back to life. To bring it back again… It opened my whole spectrum of seeing how important it is for me, my people.
I hope that influences the whole tribe, in this nation, in this country. Language is very important for our culture.
