StudioGoonga’s first music video – shot backstage on the recent Melbourne run of gigs. This is a powerful song, here’s KB to explain:
“‘Goulburn Valley Woman’ is the story of a child taken from her family and relocated to a ‘Jesus’ mission for ‘her own good’ after the death of her Irish-born mother. Her father, being an Aboriginal man from the Yorta Yorta people, deemed unfit to care for his daughter. It takes her most of her life to finally be able to embrace her Aboriginality, to ‘find her country and make her way back to the heart’. This is a tale of resilience and triumph of the human spirit in the face of systemic cultural arrogance and ignorance.” Kevin Bennett
