A corroboree is an event where Australian Aboriginals interact with the Dreamtime through dance, music and costume. Their bodies painted in different ways, and they wore various adornments, which were not used every da. The word corroboree was coined by the European settlers of Australia in imitation of an east coast local Aboriginal Australian word caribberie.
Corroboree, the Australian Aboriginal word for 'dance meeting' is an indigenous music package. It features some of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia's newest and most contemporary recordings. The Music is presented on five CDs, each containing two 30-minute programs.
