2018 Arts Education Colloquium Series
No Fixed Address
Contemporary Indigenous Music
As part of the 2018 Arts Education Colloquium Series Australian Aboriginal reggae rock group No Fixed Address were invited for a performance and discussion. Contemporary Indigenous music communicates powerfully the stories and aspirations and dreams of Indigenous Australians. It serves as a vehicle for Indigenous communities to address critical social issues, such as the Stolen Generation and land rights. Contemporary Indigenous music is culturally rich, musically significant and is influential in shaping broader Australian popular music.
The original band members Bart Willoughby (drums, vocals), Ricky Harrison (rhythm guitar, vocals), Les Graham (lead guitar) and John Miller (bass) have reformed and started touring the country with plans to record a new album. The colloquium was broadcast by 3CR.
