Bio

Desert Pea Media is very proud to announce our new collaboration with the Barkindji community in Wilcannia, in the heart of Western NSW on the Darling River. This production brought together Elders, community members and young people to create a conversation about country, culture and community.

Desert Pea Media projects involve a dialogue-based storytelling process that encourages participants to analyse 'the real', 'the ideal' and 'the bridge'. In simple terms this means critically thinking about how to create positive change for yourself, for each other and for our communities.

The DPM team feels deeply honored to learn, share, create and build friendships and connection with the Barkindji community in Wilcannia. These projects not only uplift and inspire audiences and community members, but everybody involved. These are friendships and experiences that are deeply valued and respected.

This project featured the musical direction and production of acclaimed music producer Carlo Santone (Blue King Brown/Nattali Rize). We thank you brother for you artistic vision and awesome work.

As powerful as you'd expect from a crew so deeply embedded in history and culture. This goes hard!

Every word brings you right down to earth. It's powerful.
"I'm connected to my country, to my culture, to my mob/health. If you disrespect your country, you disrespect yourself".
"This my mob, this is me, this my future".
"Country is my medicine".

more than before, this really fuses some modern production with your traditional sounds. i closed my eyes and was among the red dust with you.
