A Barkly wide youth diversion ongoing project from Barkly Regional Council which spans many languages, many kilometers and entering five years of ongoing mentoring and tuition, this act is a collection of 6 young men from three Barkly communities; Ampilatwatja, Wutunugurra and Elliott of the NT, Central Australia. These songs represent the hard lives of which these young men live.

Growing up in Central Australia is very hard and the stories contained within the songs reflect the challenges that these young men face. Strong messages and representing culture and a strong connection to land these songs stay true to their cultural identities and bring cultural stories to the new generations.
