Album Notes
Respect water, this song was inspired by walking with the spirit festival in Beswick, Arnhem Land. I was honoured to be part of this special event and place. It is magical place, Beswick Falls took me back to Sudan. When I was a young girl, I used to swim in the small lake coming out from Lake Victoria, falling beautifully, when we tried we sit under the trees and you can see the big white sand sparkling under big trees. When Victoria Falls come down, it goes through that small lake and it can carry away big animals and people if they don’t take care. I missed that place and its one of my great memories. And sitting down under the trees again with the Indigenous women, sharing and talking about passing on stories. It was just like the old time with my family, especially my grandfather who used to tell me bed time stories, under the bright moon. Sitting under the trees with them made me feel peaceful; on the one hand, there was sadness on our faces, a similar pain, a shared silent agony. I could feel their strong will, resilience, but I couldn’t tell how will this end, for both, of us. Two worlds wearing the same hat, fighting for survival. As a community worker, it concerned me when I see other black people struggling in this great country. It reveals a hidden truth. And, I think Africa’s community should know more about Indigenous struggles. We are all people of the land.
