Launch: Bogga Mish whip up the johnny cake dough
Bogga Mish is a group of young First Nations artists from the Gomeroi (Kamilaroi, Gamilaraay) Aboriginal communities in Boggabilla/Toomelah NSW.
Where Ya From? is a tuff, driving, political hip-hop ballad that draws influences from 90’s acid jazz/ west coast hip hop. This track is about strong cultural identity and pride in the face of a brutal and oppressive social and political history, racism and trauma.
The group has evolved from a storytelling project which created a conversation about how to use bush remedies to stay healthy. The project was funded by Hunter New England Population Health and Hunter New England Aboriginal Health, hosted by Toomelah Public School and Boggabilla Central School and facilitated/directed by DPM.
