Good Company - Urandangi State school

The Urandangi State Sschool is a one teacher school located two kilometres from the town of Urandangi (alternatively spelt “Urandangie”) in outback Queensland near the Northern Territoryborder. It’s attended by children of an estimated one hundred Marmanya people and Urandangie residents. Access for the non-locals is usually by four wheel drive and, at times when the nearby Georgina River floods, only by air. Services are limited.

Survival and kinship take priority: when you sleep under the stars of our beautiful Southern skies in an environment of soaring temperatures and blistering winds that stir up the sand…
when the food’s all gone and your mind’s on the hunt…

there are days when you might miss the sports carnival you’ve trained so hard for, or miss your turn to sit in the front seat of the troopy …
but you always have friends and family bonds are strong …

The goal of this 4 track CD was to capture the children’s stories in music, while engaging them in the various activities related to music production, including style selection and recording techniques. Though a new experience for most, the children took to the task with incredible enthusiasm and remarkable skill.

Ten months and ten thousand kilometres later, these songs are the result. They reflect elements of the children’s day to day lives in Urandangie, as well as their values, unique personalities, and wonderful singing voices!
