Artist statement

When I was a teenager I saw Warumpi Band play in Alice Springs at Anzac Oval with my father. Big mob crowd, everyone came in to watch. George Burarrwanga was dancing around on stage, lots of energy. They were really popular at the time, everyone was listening to them. My favourite song is Jailanguru Pakernu (Out From Jail). That was the only time I saw them play.
