Barama - Dancing - Didgeridoo Australia Educator.jpg
Barama blow

My name is Barama Blow. I am a proud Goreng Goreng (Bundaberg)/Noonuccal (North Stradbroke Island) man. My totem is the Green Turtle (Boonbiah) but raised on Bunnurong land in Melbourne Victoria.

From a young age I learnt my culture from my father. He taught me many things about our culture and to always be proud. He had me dancing in a traditional men’s dance group and playing the Yidaki (didgeridoo). We did performances at venues like Bunjilaka at the Melbourne Museum and I still have fond memories of doing dance performances with my brothers and father each Sunday to tourists during my summer school holiday period. 

I enjoy work in schools via cultural workshops to educate youth about cultural understanding and practices. As Australian's I strongly believe that indigenous or not, we should all grow up with an understanding of First Nations Culture because with education comes understanding and the breaking down of stereotypes.

testimonials

"Your well-resourced, organised and carefully prepared session was both of a professional standard and highly engaging for our young Year 2 students. Your friendly manner and sense of humour was pitched perfectly for your audience, as students were taken through the different components of the session. The quick setup and pack up of your equipment was greatly appreciated due to the time constraints of the school timetable. Thank you again for an entertaining and educational incursion."
