Sheet Music: Score
This is our home (Ngindaji ngarragî muwayi) : SATB choir, piano and percussion / music by Paul Stanhope; English text by Steve Hawke ; Bunuba text based on song words by June Oscar and Patsy Bedford.
This piece is the final movement of Jandamarra - Sing for the Country - a music drama work originally for large choral and orchestral forces about the Indigenous resistance hero from the 1890s who fought white settlers and police in order to protect his people and country from invasion. As well as being a remembrance of Jandamarra and all he means to the Bunuba people, the song is a celebration of family, of language and of country.
