raising money for Australia forest recovery
Sarah Patterson and Jacinta Tobin recorded 'rainbow serpent' in the Blue Mountains, Australia many moons ago, recorded by John Kelly at night in his studio. It’s a testament to the power of dreaming, which seems so important these days.
The Aborigine words from Jacinta are Darug, as is the chorus chant they’re singing. The percussion is thigh slaps and boomerangs. Jacinta’s calls create a beautiful soundscape and Volker Kaczinski added the overtone chanting.
Words from Sarah: ‘Lying down inside a rock, eyes looking in, heart looking out, Rainbow Serpent colours ran, though my body and out my hands’.
Thanks to Evan Yanna Muru for his support.
Mixing by Sarah and Volker.
Please feel free to download, share and make a donation to a charity of your choice to support the recovery of Australian habitat.
Thank you, Sarah
