"Heart of Australia" - a song to celebrate Indigenous culture

Michelle Morgan - Monday, July 07, 2014

To celebrate NAIDOC Week, I've added a song to my website - "Heart of Australia" is a song that my husband and I wrote as a celebration of Indigenous culture in Australia. We wrote it in 1989, three years before the Mabo decision of the High Court of Australia.

You can listen to "Heart of Australia" on my Songs page and view the lyrics as well. I hope you like it!
