7-9th March 2008 .Botanic Park. Adelaide.

Black Arm Band in Murundak .

Friday 9:15pm Stage Two.

   This impressive ensemble (which premiered at the Melbourne festival in 2006 ) featured almost every indigenous musical artist of worth that I can think of. Archive Roach, Ruby Hunter and more than 20 others were joined by John Butler for their memorable show, which featured the moving "Is This What We Deserve ? " - accompanied by a gut wrenching visual display on the big screens , and finishing with a stirring ' Treaty ' which had the whole crowd dancing and singing along .
