"The Torres Strait region of northern Queensland has been significantly influenced by cultures originating in Asia. Along with other cultural artefacts and social practices, migrants from Japan, the Philippines, present-day Indonesia, Sri Lanka and elsewhere brought their musicianship,mlusic and performance cultures with them. The rich musical culture of the Torres Strait region today is the result of these diverse Asian influences combining with the equally diverse heritage of the region's Aboriginal, European, Melanesian and Polynesian peoples."
