Following the success of his debut album Sunshine After Rain (Best Album, 2006 Indigenous Music Awards), Tom E. Lewis brings together four Arnhem Land Songmen in a release unlike anything heard before in Indigenous music. This startling work comes with a bonus 30minute behind-the-scenes DVD.
In a ground breaking stylistic development, four senior ceremony men have relinquished their didjeridu to work with gyspy, rhumba, jazz and rock influences that provide a dynamic contemporary platform for traditional formats. Ross Hannaford lends his legendary guitar style, and together with Tom Lewis (rhythm guitar), Michael Hohnen (double bass), and Tony Floyd (drums, percussion), Songmen Roy Ashley, Micky Hall, Victor Hood and Jimmy Wesan breathe new life into these songs from the dust.
