Launch: Barkindji Soldiers shout country is my medicine

The Barkindji Soldiers are a group of young First Nations artists from the Barkindji community in Wilcannia NSW.

Heartbeat is a provocative, emotional anthem from the cultural heart of Western NSW.  A mantra for country, for connection, for the Darling River Basin, and a challenge for all Australians to make their voices heard and push for positive change and environmental sustainability.

The group has evolved from a storytelling project which created a conversation about culture, country and sustainability. The project was funded by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and NSW Health Aboriginal Environmental Health and facilitated/directed by DPM.
