“Murru” Deb Myers, Bill Chambers & Harry Hookey

 Let's Talk

25 October 2013

Murru is an album in memory the Death in Custody of Aboriginal teenager John Pat.

Tiga speaks to Deb Myers, Project Coordinator, Bill Chambers & Harry Hookey, artists who worked on the album.

The music collaboration – which includes the talents of John Bennett, Shellie Morris, Emma Donovan, Archie Roach, Lucky Oceans, Harry Hookey, Bill Chambers, the Last Kinection, Trevor Jamieson and David Hyams  – is the result of over two and a half years of music workshops run by Big hART productions in the Roebourne Regional Prison and the community as part of the Yijala Yala Project – a long term, multi-platform and inter-generational arts project.

The aim of the album is to raise funds for a memorial to John to be built in Roebourne and create discussion around the need for strategies to reduce Indigenous incarceration rates and eradicate preventable deaths in custody.
