Songspirals is a rare opportunity to connect with the living tradition of women's songlines, as recounted by Yolngu women from far north Australia. Aboriginal Australian cultures are the oldest living cultures on earth and at the heart of Aboriginal cultures is song.

For Yolngu people from North East Arnhem Land, women and men play different roles in bringing songlines to life, yet the vast majority of what has been published is about men's place in songlines. Songspirals is a rare opportunity for outsiders to experience Aboriginal women's role in crying the songlines in a very authentic and direct form.

Gay'wu Group of Women is the 'dilly bag women's group' who offer the incredible and intimate Gay’Wu - The Dilly Bag Women's Tour available on Welcome to Country.

A Wonderful Trip

Hi, I haven't finished reading the book yet, but am enthralled. I have read about Songlines before and am fascinated by them. I think anyone wanting to learn and understand more about our First Nation's People should read this.

Songspirals

A book that truly educated me more on Aboriginal cultures, I learnt so much from reading this book. I loved the journey that this book took me on, I loved the connection and the wisdom that was shared in this book.

Inspiring humanity at its best

A vital read to understand the gift of our indigenous people and their heritage which we are in disparate need with the ravages of western culture making it's own and everyone else sick from its ego-centric capitalist disease.
