Coloured Stone - Inma Juju


After 20 years and seven albums, Coloured Stone stand proud as the
longest surviving Aboriginal band in Australia. Bunna Lawrie and the
boys have probably seen more of this country than any other band,
too, performing in major cities and remote communities alike, often
camping out in the scrub after shows .They formed in 1978 in
Kooniba, a tiny community in South Australia and have been based
all over the Northern Territory over the years.
Bunna is the founding member, singer, guitarist, songwriter,
in a band which has under gone many lineup changes.
Bart Willoughby from No Fixed Address played
with them from 1984 to 1985 and Bunna is his uncle.
Coloured Stone have a unique sound, a bit reggae, a bit funky,
but unique in it aboriginality. Bunna is a fantastic song writer,
able to write catchy dance songs such the wonderful
"Love is a Medicine" or "Dancing In The Moonlight"
or write the most heart felt song of pain and sadness
as in the monumental "This Land".
This album has plenty great tracks on it so if you don't know
these guys have a listen and be sure to tell everyone what
you think in the comments.

Hi, Bob!
Great music. A bit rock, a bit funk. This is modern aboriginality music. Thanx
“Bart Willoughby from No Fixed Address played
