Songs from the Stations: Wajarra

Myfany Turpin and Felicity Meakins

Songs from the Stations documents the vibrant ceremonial practices and musical traditions that flourished on Wave Hill Station during the first
half of the 20th century, combining desert and Top End musical styles with influences from the West.

Songs from the Stations is an important work – an invaluable work. It’s the first time that these public songs, as performed by the Gurindji, have been documented in detail.
