The Music of UPK5

Nganampa Health Council, the anangu controlled health service for this region, recognizes the power of music to bring awareness to the important health issues impacting the people who live in remote communities With funding provided by the Australian Government it has set about producing a recording to help in the fight against chronic disease.

UPK5 at Katjikuta followed the practice of intense discussion of how to use music to fight disease, about survival in an age of endemic renal disease, diabetes, circulatory and heart disease and social disruption. All the musicians have experienced considerable family loss from disease and sickness. It is a perplexing task to draw on these experiences in a musical way; there was a general view expressed that songs should reflect that caring for ones children, commitment to family and vigilance were the best weapons.
