Bring Me Home translated into Luritja

Oct 21, 2021 | 2016, Big Sing In the Desert, Bring Me Home, Language, Songs

Bring Me Home was translated into Luritja at Big Sing in the Desert, April 2016.

The English words, music and choral arrangement for Bring Me Home were originally written by Rachel Hore to teach at Big Sing in the Desert in 2016. Luritja speaking singers immediately wanted to translate the words into their language. Linda Anderson and Alison Anderson worked on this.

These are the words:

Ngalya kati matju
Manta walytja kutu
Katini, ngurra kutu
Katini, ngurra kutu

Listen to them being sung by Big Sing in the Desert participants:
