'…the most compelling few minutes of indigenous-inspired fast music to come from any white Australian…' The Sydney Morning Herald (Graeme Skinner), 7 April 2008

‘Kalkadungu…marks a new development. They have succeeded in combining two musical traditions into a unified work of art. The stomping rhythms and dissonance in the two sections called “Warrior Song” created an atmosphere of unrelenting violence and confrontation. By contrast, the finale’s vibrant colours and melodic impulses evoke a distinctly Australian sound world… Kalkadungu won the audience and was given and standing ovation… Kalkadungu opens new opportunities for Australian music.’

The Australian (Murray Black), 4 April 2008
