Australian Aboriginal Music

Australian Aboriginal Music has formed  part of the social, cultural and ceremony, of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, throughout their individual, and collective histories to this present day. The traditional forms of Australian Aboriginal Music, include many aspects of performance, and use of musical instruments, such as the  didgeridoo, Sticks, Boomerang clap sticks, hollow log drum, notched stick, bunches of seed pods, skin drum (whose head is made from lizard or goanna skin), or  using what is unique to the different regions, of Indigenous Australian groups. The culture of the Torres Strait Islanders is related to that of adjacent parts of New Guinea and so their music is also related.

Australian Aboriginal Music is a vital part of Indigenous Australians' cultural maintenance.

Here is a sample of the traditional music of the native people of Australia.
