The Mission Songs Project

The Mission Songs Project faithfully explores the musical journey of Indigenous Australian music as Jessie Lloyd connects the traditional with contemporary and reveals the continuation of cultural practice in the 21st Century. These songs offer a unique window about life on the missions, reserves and the fringes of townships, where Indigenous people were relocated. The collection consists of rare and almost forgotten songs that shed light and understanding into the history of our Indigenous communities. Featuring Emma Donovan, Leah Flanagan and Jessie Hitchcock.
