Indigenous Australians in Song & Record – A Listing & Discography

UPDATE: this index, listing and discography is still in development. More song lyrics, images, sound files and data need to be added and cross-checked. Instrumental songs and musical works with no lyrical content (apart from the title) will be listed separately. 21/09/2017.

The following is a listing of popular songs, musical works and sound recordings that make reference to Indigenous Australian cultures and themes, through title, lyrics, music, sounds or words, often appropriated or mis-appropriated. It must be noted that most references are made to Aboriginal rather than Torres Strait Islander cultures, although the depictions can be so distorted and grotesque that it is difficult to find any traces of ‘authentic’ Australian Indigenous cultures or practices.

The listing will be updated periodically. More pictures and information will be added soon. This is a work in progress!
