Desert Pea Media

Desert Pea Media is the brain child of Communications Graduate, Toby Finlayson, with the express purpose in giving Indigenous Australians an avenue to have a voice.

Through music, video and poetry, Toby and his crew travel to various communities and lend their skills to teach and guide the children (and adults) to create their own songs and clips.

The output is vast, the content is remarkable, and the topics these kids choose to discuss, is far beyond their years and a stark reminder of the lives they lead. It is a triumph in progression and sharing and something that deserves all the acknowledgement it gets.

Particular stand out for me is the Tin Trackers.

So turn this up, and listen. There’s a lot to be heard.
