Summary
  • "This is one small piece of a research project carried out by a team of musicologists and linguists during 2004-2008 on song traditions at Wadeye, NT and its environs [L Barwick, J Blythe, A Marett and M Walsh 2007 'Arriving, digging, performing, returning: an exercise in rich interpretation of a djanba song text in the sound archive of the Wadeye Knowledge Centre, Northern Territory of Australia' in RM Moyle (ed.) Oceanic Encounters: Festschrift for Mervyn McLean Research in Anthropology and Linguistics Monographs, Auckland. pp. 13-24]. Drawing on Peter Toner's analysis of Dhalwangu Manikay songs from the Yolngu area which in turn relies on Paul Friedrich's theory of polytropy, an attempt is made to present a detailed account of a Murriny Patha song in the Djanba style.
