Milpirri People 2017

Since 1988 Lajamanu and Tracks artists have been working together. The relationship between Tracks and Lajamanu has produced performances which have become an iconic part of the place and company. The Milpirri performances are a prime example. The ongoing relationships built over this time are trusted and heartfelt.
