Description:Listening to and translating awely Ntarrengeny. These are the files in the session SP-070404Arnka02
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.
Public women's ceremonial display songs. Performed with dancing and painting-up. These songs can also be performed for healing purposes. For this purpose the songs are sung in private. IN the Central and Eastern Arrernte region awelye is more often associated with healing than a public display genre. See arrartenh-artenhe for this.
