STILL HERE ARTS & CULTURE]
・・・
Baiyiya Yapaneyepuk translates to Song Together in Yorta Yorta language.
Baiyiya Yapaneyepuk is all about song being shared. Song being shared together, generated by kinship systems that are linked to many thousands of years of connection to this land and to the culture that it is connected to.
Baiyiya Yapaneyepuk is an event that will give both a glimpse into the future, and a special offering of the now, featuring a line-up of some of the most exciting emerging Yorta Yorta talent from the local region alongside more established artists.
The line-up brings together DJVM – a Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung, Wiradjuri woman who will DJ throughout the event, offering selections of First Nations sounds. We’ll then hear from the powerful Shepparton based emerging star – and Yorta Yorta, Kuku Yalanji woman – Lillie Walker. Lillie will be followed by talented Yorta Yorta, Bundjalung songwriter, Shanikwa AJ.  And then onto local Yorta Yorta hip hop and spoken word artist, Bricky B . Headlining this event is the exciting and captivating talent that is 2016 X Factor winner, Isaiah Firebrace (Yorta Yorta , Gunditjmara).
This #SheppMusicWeek showcase is brought to you by Still Here supported by Riverlinks, Songlines and Music Victoria and Creative Victoria

This event will take place on Yorta Yorta country and we acknowledge the eight clan groups of Yorta Yorta Nation, of which Still Here Arts & Culture operates. We Acknowledge that our Sovereignty has not been ceded and that this Always Was and Always Will be Indigenous Land.

Thank you so much for your generosity and making me feel so inclusive at SHARE THE SPIRIT 2021 I'm so sorry that so many people didn't take advantage of their seats. They certainly missed out on a fantastic day.

In ancient times a Songman was highly regarded amongst his people, he was a special kind of performer who composed songs to describe day-to-day events; his repertoire of performance and sharing was always enriched with storytelling through song, laden with ancient knowledge and passed on by the ancestors. The Songman was a messenger, he was tasked with the responsibility of keeping the stories alive, tasked with preserving sacred culture… Five years ago Minyungbal Yugambeh songman, Uncle Magpie sung in a dream, a vision of a certain healing of humanity, a coming together in unity, connection for one and all, it went like this: A globally recognised indigenous gathering would be held upon the Wooyung Songline, just North of Byron Bay. There would be Songmen and women, dance troupes, artists, crafts people, weavers, carvers, storytellers, spokespeople, spiritual guides, elders and knowledge holders coming together from all corners of the globe for a weekend of deep cultural immersion and unity. That time is now, come, join us for the inaugural Fields Of Healing event, November 24 and 25, 2018 Byron Bay. https://www.facebook.com/1unity.earth/videos/2122203538094944/?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A70%2C%22source%22%3A1%2C%22action_history%22%3A%22[%7B%5C%22surface%5C%22%3A%5C%22permalink%5C%22%2C%5C%22mechanism%5C%22%3A%5C%22surface%5C%22%2C%5C%22extra_data%5C%22%3A[]%7D]%22%7D&active_tab=discussion
One Vision Productions is proud to announce our first release for 2018, “World In Our Hands” by the super talented Indigenous students of Goonellabah Public School. This video was created during an 8 week "Music for Change" program in Term 1, 2018. The proud young mob from Goonellabah Public remind us of our connection to the land and carry the song lines for future generations in this awesome new track. Their lyrics describe the natural world full of song and color, we have to observe and listen to nature in order to fully experience it, learn from it and connect with it. A big thank you to all the students involved in the production, may you shine with unlimited potential! Please support us to continue to create empowering movements by liking and sharing! @onevisionproductions
