Reconciliation song released by First Sounds
In the lead up to Reconciliation Week, The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) has announced that IndigiTUBE and Amrap are pre-releasing an upbeat reggae track from First Sounds Vol 8, Reconciliation, by Minjungbal (Bundjalung) man Garry Kafoa.
Donna Woods, from First Nations Media Australia’s indigiTUBE project, says “The track, first written and released for Reconciliation Week 2021 was entered and selected by First Sounds’ panel of First Nations judges for Vol.8 and speaks to the hope of one day soon having reconciliation.”
Garry Kafoa says “This is a song about an Elder who speaks with some younger people about his life and the hope of one day soon having reconciliation. He speaks of how he has seen bad days and how he has seen the good days and how he has seen changes for the better.”
