Dreams is a hopeful, melodic reggae/rap ballad co-written by students, elders and DPM staff Toby Finlayson, Michael Graham and Brisbane-based Indigenous hip hop artist and label owner Fred Leone aka Rival MC. This song represents a conversation about ambition, leadership, and hopefulness - young people exploring the issues in their community and exploring solutions and messages that uplift, inspire and empower Original Nations people around Australia and the world.
