Aboriginal rock is a uniquely Australian fusion of rock & roll -- hard, rough-and-ready Aussie rock, primarily, but also folk-rock -- and traditional aboriginal music. Aboriginal rock is often heavily percussion-driven, incorporating traditional rhythms, but sometimes sounds more ethereal and atmospheric, if the didgeridoo is emphasized in the arrangements. Most aboriginal rock groups play a mix of traditional aboriginal songs (given modern rock arrangements) and originals, which often address the political and cultural plight of the aborigines.
