One Day in Fremantle. .
Every year on Australia Day I have this battle within myself of wanting to celebrate the amazing country I call home but knowing how wrong it is to celebrate it on January 26th, as that date is a reminder of the pain, suffering and torture that was inflicted upon my people and something which was inflicted only a couple of generations back. .
After hearing that the City of Fremantle (after huge success in 2017) chose to hold One Day I was so excited to finally be able to attend an event to celebrate the beautiful country I live in knowing it would be celebrated guilt free. Knowing that the Mayor of the City of Fremantle had chosen to put on this event on this date for the purpose of inclusion and witnessing the celebration of Aboriginal performance instilled a sense of pride, not only in my culture but in the City of Fremantle. .
For the first time I felt the most immense sense of pride walking down the street as an Aboriginal person on my way to celebrate Australia, so much that I was excited to paint my face up before going.
The atmosphere of this afternoon was so incredibly uplifting and something I can only hope will one day move beyond the City of Fremantle.

Didgeridoo is a long wooden flute, perhaps the oldest musical instrument on earth.
The didjiri-du.. is a long hollow tube, often a tree root about 5 feet long, slightly curved at the lower end. The musician squats on the ground, resting his instrument on the earth. He fits his mouth into the straight or upper end and blows down it in a curious fashion. He produces an intermittent drone.
1. Possibly the world's oldest musical instrument.
2. A wind instrument originally found in Arnhem Land, Northern Australia.

Drummer Kamahl Murungun and his band, Juram, playing their first ever gig at Ngukurr Art Centre, Northern Territory. Kamahl has some pretty serious musical pedigree: he's related to every member of Broken English, a band once described by Rolling Stone magazine as "the best heavy metal band in the country". He's previously played and toured with Blekbala Mujik (Kriol for 'Blackfella Music'), a hugely popular rock-reggae band on the NT festival circuit. .
This pic is from an article I wrote & shot for DrumScene magazine about just some of the many excellent drummers from Arnhem Land's remote Aboriginal communities. .
