The Song Keepers – bringing two strands of culture together through song

In the uplifting film THE SONG KEEPERS, Director Naina Sen embeds with the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir as they prepare a repertoire of Baroque hymns, taught by 19th-century Lutheran missionaries, and take it back to amazed audiences in Germany. The story of ‘The Song Keepers’ featured recently in the NZ International Film Festival and conductor Morris Stuart was interviewed on Radio NZ.
