Jimblah: Face the Fire
Jimblah is a Larrakia MC and producer hailing from Adelaide. I first heard of Jimblah when he took out the inaugural Hilltop Hoods Initiative in 2007. I then got to catch him live for the first time when he toured with A-Love on her Main Ingredient tour. Have been keen ever since for the pending solo release.
Face the Fire, is the title track of Jimblah’s recently released debut album.
Welcome to NAIDOC Week 2011
NAIDOC Week is an annual week (this year it runs 3 - 10 July) to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
In this country there is a lot that we have had to fight. Something that unfortunately still carries on so strongly is that we are told that we are not worthy. We are told that we are lesser. That we were/are a week people. That our culture is lesser, and that we should not be proud of our culture. That we should be ashamed of it.
Everything that has been thrown at us - invasion, wars, massacres, genocide, poisoning, stolen generationS, dispossession, institutionalisation, rape….. The list goes on. You threw the best of colonisation at us, and we are STILL here. Despite all that! Yes, we have the ongoing trauma and problems that comes with this history, but, our culture is STILL here. We are proud. We are strong. WE HAVE SURVIVED!!!
So, I’m going to post a song each day to mark NAIDOC week. Kicking off with the track that I have loved since I was a youngen & I always pump whenever I’m feeling proud -No Fixed Address: We Have Survived.
