‘On Country’ is a clean and enjoyable musical experience.
But it’s also a strong call to action against forced community closures, named for its emotive chorus featuring local singer-songwriters Della Rae Morrison, Ronnie Smith, and Charley.
The release is timed to coincide with this week’s rallies against the forced closure of Aboriginal communities, with all our proceeds from the sale of this song to be donated to SOSblakaustralia.
With Rob Shaker producing the beat and Bryte MC, Charley and Della all on board from very early on, we knew we were on to something unique.
The end result is a strong political statement denouncing racism, and calling for human rights, a treaty and sovereignty for Aboriginal people. But most importantly it is an act of solidarity with all people living ‘On Country’.
