The songs and threatened languages of one of Australia’s most prominent genres of Indigenous music, wangga, from Australia’s Top End, are presented in a new book published by researchers at PARADISEC.

Songmen from the Daly region of the Northern Territory who created and performed songs for their communities and general public over the past fifty years are the subject of the book, For the Sake of a Song: Wangga Songmen and their Repertories.

The book will be launched tonight as part of the celebrations for PARADISEC’s move into the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
