Aboriginal people and country music may seem like an unlikely pairing, but for a significant part of the 20th century it was - and to some extent still is - a vital force in Australian music. The genre is widely credited as being among the earliest mediums to have given Aboriginal people a strong voice in popular music; a voice that is still growing today. From pioneers like Jimmy Little and Dougie Young, through Lionel Rose, the Country Outcasts and Auriel Andrew, to Vic Simms, Roger Knox and Troy Cassar-Daley, this is a comprehensive overview of an intruguing genre.
