The Western Arnhem Land Song Project - Linda Barwick Tue, 2013-09-03 17:14

Linda Barwick tells us about her joint documentation project with Allan Marrett and other linguists and musicologists in West Arnhem Land, Australia. The project came out of an “interest in how the musical traditions [of West Arnhem Land] relate to language and how music communities navigate around multilingual layers of affiliation and communication.”

An overview of the documentation project can be found on the Endangered Languages ARchive (ELAR) deposit page (http://elar.soas.ac.uk/deposit/arnhemland-135103). This project was funded by the Hans Rausing Endangered Languages Project
