Book Details

Madjem Bambandila is a stunning celebration of the artistic and cultural practice of acclaimed Wergaia and Wemba Wemba artist Kelly Koumalatsos. Co-written by Kelly Koumalatsos and Dr Paola Balla and featuring the voices of a broad range of artists, writers and cultural figures, Madjem Bambandila takes a unique community-based approach to storytelling. The book takes the form of a possum cloak, stitching together conversations, essays, poems and personal reflections to create a volume that is warm and grounded in culture. aThis is blak storytelling at its deadliest!a a Dr Shannon Faulkhead aKellyas work is quintessentially south-eastern, and it beautifully represents the heart, strength and power of Koorie art as a continuing sovereign force.a a Dr Paola Balla
