This is a great Aussie song by Graeme Connors.  I wrote it for my Darwin

workshops. It will be a special time for me as I haven’t been up that way for

40 years and hat was way before Cyclone Tracey demolished the city in 1974. 

Hope YOU like the dance!  Feel free to contact me if you need any help.
