The Central Australian Women’s Choir in Song Keepers
Three excerpts from the feature documentary The Song Keepers (Naina Sen, Australia, 2017), about the Central Australian Women’s Choir.
In the first excerpt, Daphne Puntjina, member of the Areyonga choir since 1962, speaks of travelling to Darwin with the choir for a singing contest. She was the only First Peoples' participant in the solo singing category which she won on the night.
Theresa Nipper, a member of the Areyonga choir since 1965, speaks of her love of singing and the ways it has been shared within her community.
Finally, choir conductor and director Morris Stuart leads the Central Australian Women’s Choir during rehearsal.
