Richard Frankland is a Gunditjmara man, Koytpa Koy Koy Mara. A story man. An art-warrior.
His fifth album , “Discovering Leerpeen Mara” is a reimagining of Richard Frankland’s life map of songs. It features new songs like the achingly beautiful Freycinet Line and new recordings/arrangements of some of Richard’s older work like "Cry Freedom" set to the beats of NZ DJ Quix, the extraordinary guitar work of fellow Gunditjmara man Lee Sonnyboy Morgan and the brilliant didgeridoo, sound effects and beats of Larrakia man Ash Dargan.
The songs, stories and language depict humanistic issues relevant to the First Nation experience from past and present.
