Yargeh Wadjeleh - The Language of the Wind | Kyle Slabb
The Language of the Wind — Yargeh Wadjeleh, is a sound installation created by emerging Indigenous leader Kyle Slabb, with Elders from South East Queensland and northwest New South Wales.
Exploring the concept of multi-layered cultural planes, this project combines a series of incredibly rich and moving soundscapes of local songlines, which correlate to traditional Indigenous notions of place (Jagun) and time (Guriahbu).
Sounding at intervals throughout the day, these powerful and evocative calls to country will interrupt and permeate the natural landscape. Yargeh Wadjeleh is guaranteed to stir; enveloping you in a sound-ocean of ancient knowledge and the language of the wind.
