Compiled and reissued by the ever reliable Efficient Space, Waak Waak ga Min Min presents the contemporary works of Indigenous Australian outfit Waak Waak Djungi, a group of Australian aboriginal musicians belonging to the Yolngu tribe, an indigenous people from the far northeast territory of Arnhem Land. In the mid 90’s these Yolngu song men set out to record modern reinterpretations of ceremonial songs resulting with the 1997 CD only release Crow Fire Music. The release remained largely unknown until it was rediscovered nearly decades later, filed away in a Melbourne community radio station library. Deep and transcendent traditional vocal soundscapes meet sweeping panoramic synths and downtempo grooves added by Victorian producer and “New Ager” Peter Mumme. It’s another record showcasing the power in connecting past to future, celebrating traditional themes while also embracing the contemporary. A captivating listen, rich with Yolngu stories of “black crows and white cockatoos, sharing, creation spirits, of leaving and returning home,” Waak Waak ga Min Min is a beautiful sonic offering and a celebratory look into the richness of Australian aboriginal culture.
