See it, discuss it and hear them live!

This four-piece band has gained fame throughout Australia for their unique blend of rock ‘n’ roll, Indigenous culture, and language in their songs.

Lead singer Jay Minning, a Spinifex man and the community’s traditional songman, plays a vital role in creating and performing songs that bridge the connection between the community and their country.

Their music delves into the profound culture of the last true nomads, with songs that touch on aspects of hunter-gatherer life and their people’s survival through the 1950s British atomic testing at Maralinga, rapidly expanding their fanbase.

Gravel Road is a Flywire Films production, directed by Tristan Pemberton and the Tjuntjuntjara Community.
