Title:singing children's songs
Classical Song Traditions of Contemporary Western Arnhem Land in Their Multilingual Context
Contributor:Thompson, Tommy
Contributor (recorder):Turpin, Myfany
Description:Two Kaytetye children's songs
The classical song traditions of Western Arnhem Land are amongst the foremost examples of verbal art in the nine endangered languages of the region, but few people are now competent to perform or comment on them. Typically performed in multi-lingual social contexts, song texts demonstrate unusual linguistic features such as mixtures of languages and a high proportion of esoteric and intimate vocabulary. We will collect, transcribe, translate and analyse song texts and discussions about songs by contemporary performers, and where relevant repatriate and document archival recordings, making our research results available to communities via a network of local digital repositories.
