Mission Songs Project by Jessie Lloyd Music

Mission Songs Project is an initiative to revive contemporary Australian Indigenous songs from 1900 to 1999, focusing on the Christian missions, state-run settlements and native camps where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were relocated in the early 20th century. 

Searching for the secular songs that were sung after church, Mission Songs Project looks to explore the day to day life of the mission days, from cultural identity to love and loss. These unique songs consist of almost forgotten stories that can now shed light on the history of our Indigenous elders, families and communities.

The Mission Songs Project faithfully explores the musical journey of Indigenous music.
