Description

The Uwankara palyanku kanyintjaku: health promotion songs are a series of four CDs, produced by Nganampa Health Council, featuring songs with a variety of health messages of relevance to Indigenous communities.

The first CD, produced in 1989, features the 'Shower block Song', and also other songs covering topics including health hardware, land and health lifestyle practices. The second CD was produced over a two week period at a bush camp at Tilun Tilun, and examples of the song topics are drinking, diet and children. The second CD was so popular that demand came from the community for a third. This was produced in 2004 at a bush camp at Kunma Piti with songs on petrol sniffing, youth suicide and diet. The community enthusiasm continued and in 2005 the fourth CD was recorded at Ulkiya. This album features contributions by members of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and songs cover a range of topics including parenting, humbug, and petrol sniffing.

Funding for the resources was provided by the Department of Health.
