Darryl has now taken his place as the new ï¿½Gunborgï¿½ Margo Master for this corroboree. Darryl proudly plays in the tradition of his late and great master, and David Blanasi is remembered every time The White Cockatoo Performing Group appear in Australia or around the world. The Kunbjorrk style is characterized by the continuous drone of the didjeridu being syncopated in time with the chant of the songmen. This song style is a feature of the music of Western Arnhem Land. As one of the new Gunborg (alt. spelling) didjeridu masters of Western Arnhem Land, Darryl is kept busy with ceremony business throughout the region. In Europe Darryl is a major star in the didjeridu scene and recently figured on the cover of the German magazine Didjeridu & Co. As the new ï¿½Gunborgï¿½ master Darryl holds a position of high status within his own culture as a master artist.

According to tribal law Mr. Blanasi handed on this corroboree To Jack Nawill and David Yirindilli in the year 2000. As a Jungaaiyi, a senior ceremonial lawman, Jack rarely gets to leave Arnhem Land because his ceremonial responsibilities keep him extremely busy. Jackï¿½s detailed knowledge of the corroboree songs and dreaming stories qualify him as one of Australia's national living treasures. Jackï¿½s skill in combining the rhythmic use of voice and clap sticks also distinguish him as one of Arnhem Landï¿½s outstanding elder musicians. Despite the prominence of the didjeridu, it is the songmen who own and create the songs and decide what kind of accompaniment the didjeridu player will provide. The songmen are the high status artists within their own culture.

Descendance Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders Dance Company . The Descendance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dance Theatre was born from the mighty Ngaru (Naroo) Aboriginal Dance Company, Sydney's first professional independent traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dance troupe established in 1993. Ngaru means "shake a leg", a dance style prevalent in the Cape York Peninsula in North Queensland. Ngaru had been one of the longest running professional performing Aboriginal dance troupes in Australia. In 1999 the name was changed to "Descendance" to account for the many artists from diverse tribes around Australia joining the company. The company evolved into two companies. One is based in Sydney, and one permanent group living and doing nightly shows in Alice Springs (Central Australia). The Alice Springs "Red Centre Dreaming" experience has been running since 2000 attracting thousands of visitors from all over the world. In 2003 Descendance were presented with a Brolga award in tourism for their outstanding performances in their Alice Springs "Red Centre Dreaming experience". Descendance has also completed hundreds of shows across Europe, America and Asia, and participated in major world events at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and the opening ceremony of the Rugby Union World Cup in 2003. Since the year 2000, Descendance has participated in almost every major international convention including the Olympic games in Sydney 2000. Sean Choolburra originally formed Ngaru in Sydney in 1993, Sean was born in Townsville in North Queensland, and has a background from three Aboriginal tribes, Girrma from Tully (Fathers side) Kalkadoon from Mount Isa (mother's side) and Kukuyalanji from Cooktown (grandfathers side). In 1998 Ngaru came under the guidance of the late, great Aboriginal song woman Imelda Willis, and world music pioneer and producer Jose Calarco. Imelda came down from the sleepy seaside Aboriginal mission of Yarrabah in far North Queensland, (Where she rests in peace today). Imelda had just completed a six month season of traditional dance and song at Ayers rock before finishing her career in Sydney. Imelda gave Descendance the dances and songs from her two tribes (Kandju/Cape York) and (Yidindji/Cairns). Descendance was born out of her loving memory to create an independent vehicle and indigenous agency for artists without support or funding. Today her daughter Nicky Willis assumes her legacy. Nicky is also the leader of the Alice Springs Descendance team. In Sydney Sean Choolburra and Les Daniel are team leaders. Descendance has over thirty dancers from diverse tribes across Australia. They come from NSW to Mount Isa, across to Rockhampton, through the Central Desert, up to Cape York, and around the Torres Strait Islands. Descendance today is helping create work for many other Aboriginal artists in areas outside dance, from painting and music, to writing and acting. Descendance has grown out of necessity for indigenous people of Australia, and has become a refuge for Aboriginal culture needing assistance. Descendance is providing Australia and the world the finest in traditional and contemporary indigenous culture and music. www.descendance.com.au

Paride Russo is a very good and well known didjeridoo player in Italy. He started playing the didjeridoo in 1996 after watching Werner Herzogï¿½s unusual Aboriginal drama movie Where the green ants dream and soon after receiving his first bamboo didje as a gift from a friend. He started playing as an autodidact inspired by various didji players including David Hudson, Nomad, Alan Dargin and Mark Atkins. After strengthening his playing techniques and starting to build his own didjeridoos experimenting the use of different kinds of materials (including glass, PVC, copper, aluminium, plexiglass, terracotta) he began playing in two bands, The Tam Tam Flutes composed by 5 musicians and a trio called Shatadoo (didjeridoo, African percussions and shells). In 2001 Paride was badly injured in a car accident which has forced him in a wheelchair up to now. His path of learning the didjeridoo and his passion for this instrument havenï¿½t stopped though as from then on he has ventured in the deep learning of traditional rythms of the aboriginal players from Eastern Arnem Land of Australia. In the meanwhile he got in contact with Guan Lim whoï¿½s been living with Djaluï¿½s Yolngu People, who stimulates him to deepen his search of didjeridoo traditional rythms. With his help Paride also created the internet site www. didjeridoos-tradizionali.com and a collaboration between the two started. At this festival he will play together with the duo Mooxa that is Gianni Perinelli at the wind instruments and live set and Atto at the bass guitar.

The Aboriginal Art Gallery of Milan presents SONGLINES c/o Forlimpopoli Didjinï¿½OZ Festival 2005 Contemporary aboriginal paintings exhibition by Elisa Gusella In Aboriginal Australia there are precise rules to ï¿½go backï¿½ or better, to get there singing the place you belong to (ï¿½.) Only then will you be able to become the Ancestorï¿½ (Bruce Chatwin, ï¿½Songlinesï¿½,1987) The Aboriginal Art Gallery of Milan will exhibit a series of contemporary Aboriginal paintings that will take us along the path of Aborigenesï¿½ handed out traditions that are evidence of Aborigines' philosophy of a land-centered spirituality. Weï¿½ll follow the maze of invisible paths that go throughout Australia, the Songlines which were walked along by the Aborigineï¿½s Ancestors while singing the names of all creatures during the Dreamtime. Bruce Chatwin, author of the book which gives the title to this exhibition, describes well this view of life in the Aboriginal culture making an important contribution to the study of those peoples. The exhibition welcomes both traditional and innovative paintings by artists from different tribes, all sharing the same subject of the ï¿½Songlineï¿½ and the dimension of the Dreamtime. The artists are: Troy Bennell, of the Nyoongar Tribe, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa from Papunya, Ada Bird Petyarre and Nancy Nungurray from Utopia. from 22nd to 24th of July 2005 c/o Forlimpopoliï¿½s Medieval Fortress (Piazza Fratti) info line: tel. 02 782166 firstname.lastname@example.org
