The Straits - Original Soundtrack Recording
Release Date: 17/02/2012
Catalogue No.: W0008
Record Label: Wantok Musik
Format: CD

 

THIS SOUNDTRACK ALBUM IS A SELECTION FROM THE OVER 200 MINUTES OF MUSIC USED IN THE TEN PART SERIES OF THE STRAITS.
This is music, sounds and songs for murder, guilt and pay-back. Love and intrigue. A sense of place amongst the metropolis of Cairns (the city in the north), to the many white sand Torres Strait Island communities and then up across the border into jungles, swamplands, mountains and atolls of Papua New Guinea.
This album showcases some of the regions unique new artists such as Maupower, Airileke, Ngaiire and Mogu as well as legendary artists Uncle Seaman Dan, Albert David, George Telek and Kadu. Amongst the Raskols, the Church congregations, the Montebello family subterfuge, the Cairns bikie gangs, the corrupt police, the crocodile farms, mangrove swamps and turquoise waters of the tropical north we hear stringband, reggae, hip-hop, old pearling songs, traditional sing sings and score featuring instruments unique to these parts: mambu, garamuts, warups, kundus, conch shells and of course the ubiquitous ukulele. Immerse yourself in it.
