The musical artistic expression of the Indigenous peoples in Australia is commonly connected to notions of place. Consequently, it is also linked to musical artistic expressions of longing and belonging; two affective emotions readily expressed through music and lyrics. In academic research about such notions, there have been many in-depth examinations of how Aboriginal Australians use music, both traditional and contemporary, to connect people to 'country', to each other and sound to emotion.
