Precious cultural belongings are called home through song. Accompanied by a string quartet, First Peoples collaborators sing in multiple languages.
Wurukur Djuanduk Balag — Ancestors Are Calling (Melbourne)

Conceived for RISING as part of MOVING OBJECTS (a collection of new work by First Peoples artists curated by RISING Artistic Associate Kimberley Moulton) wurukur djuanduk balag—Ancestors Are Calling makes its debut over two performances on Woi Wurrung, and Dja Dja Wurrung Country.

Composed in multiple First Peoples languages by Dr Lou Bennett AM (Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung), the song-based work responds to the cultural belongings of First Peoples held in the Melbourne Museum collections. It speaks to the living culture of the objects, that are alive with the spirit and energy of the Country and the people from which they came.

Bennett, a co-founder of the iconic Black Arm Band, invited a broad range of collaborators: Uncle Herb Patten (Ganai-Kurnai, Yorta Yorta and Wiradjuri), Aunty Joy Wandin Murphy (Wurundjeri), Allara (Yorta Yorta) and Silo SQ. The composition is a call to notions of family beyond the human, that nothing is inanimate; and for families to take the objects home, back to where they belong.
