Red Centre Dreaming - Traditional Aboriginal Music Site of Central Australia
We are a Southern Arrernte Aboriginal Tribal group whose homelands are situated 100 kms south of Alice Springs in Central Australia. Since 1995 we have owned and operated the Aboriginal Art and Culture Centre in Alice Springs.
Our community has been involved in Aboriginal Music for 40,000 years and we would like to now share our knowledge and experience with you.
Music song and dance was and is still today a very important part of Aboriginal life and customs. We had songs for every occasion, hunting songs, funeral songs, gossip songs and songs of ancestors, landscapes, animals, seasons, myths and Dreamtime legends.
