Click for Larger Image

In 2003 DAMIAN ROBINSON of WICKED BEAT SOUNDSYSTEM was asked to compose the music for The Sydney Dreaming Festival which was to be a theatrical adaptation of the rain maker creation story.

This Walanbadu Ceremony is an increase Rites Ceremony where cultural ancestral spirits of growth and fertility need to be expressed in song and dance to reside over the new growth of all things.

Performed by several indigenous dance groups, including Doonooch and Garrabarra along with singers EMMA and CASEY DONOVAN (winner of Australian Idol Series 2 in 2004) and song man MATHEW DOYLE at Sydney Olympic Park,

Since that performance variations of this music have been performed at several events including Woodford Indigenous Festival and the Perth International Arts Festival.

Originally composed in Byron Bay and Sydney, this album is a compilation of the best elements of the various performances.

‘Dreaming’ features a mix of indigenous styles progressing from traditional rhymes to complex modern compositions always showcasing the incredible creative power behind the oldest living culture in the world, The Australian Aboriginal.

Songs are sung in both English and various Aboriginal languages including the standout track “Miminga” sung in Gumbayngirr language by Emma Donovan. Another highlight is the song “Feathers” sung by Emma and Casey Donovan.

The Dreaming Cd was nominated for Aria award in 2009 in the category of "Best World Music Release".
