Bungalow Song, the living past

 

 

 

The living past spoke to us last night.  It is there every day, held in the trees, the hills, the river but with Bungalow Song we heard its human voice, multiple human voices. Arrernte chant reached us as if on the wind through the trees. The priceless photographs and film footage – of individuals, men, women and children, of family groups, of ceremonial groups – taken at this very spot at the end of the nineteenth century was projected onto the tin roof of the Old Telegraph Station building in front of us. It was a riveting experience of the people and culture prevailing in this place before the ravages of European settlement. KIERAN FINNANE reviews. Photos by ERWIN CHLANDA.
