CONNECTING PLACES: Mission Songs Project by Jessie Lloyd Music

A soulful and thought provoking musical journey into the songs that were sung and shared on the missions where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were relocated in the early 20th century. A beautiful revival of the almost forgotten stories that depict day to day life on the mission, exploring cultural identity, love and loss.

Mission Songs Project is an initiative to revive contemporary Australian Indigenous songs from 1900 to 1999. These unique songs consist of almost forgotten stories that can now shed light into the history of our Indigenous elders, families and communities.
