Year: 1986, this version: 2005

Duration: 6 min.

Djilile is partly based on an adaptation of an Aboriginal melody collected in Arnhem Land in the late fifties by A.P. Elkin and Trevor Jones. The title means 'whistling-duck on a billabong'.

The initial arrangement of this work for percussion duo was made by Daryl Pratt in 2005.
