Purlja vs Football - excerpt only

16 April 2011

This song from the Aboriginal Rules soundtrack, was a collaborative effort between Crocodile Johnson and Delwyn Granites of Yuendumu, and Elf Tranzporter and DJ Wasabi (musos).

It originated with a recording with Crocodile singing what he called a Warlpiri song he said was associated with the game of Purlja. We also recorded some clapping, boomerangs and found some sounds from the football games. At the time, Elf Tranzporter and DJ Wasabi were running Hip Hop workshops with Incite Youth Arts and the Mt Theo Program. They worked with Delwyn to write and perform his lyrics about football. They then worked on mixing the track and created this funky song: Purlja vs Football. It plays near the beginning of the documentary, during the sequence where Simba explains the rules of football.
