    “In 2002 the song ‘Down River’ became an overnight hit, Five boys aged eight to twelve, had recorded their own lines to a simple digeridoo beat and it struck a chord with music lovers across Australia. The boys became known as the Wilcania Mob when the song hit high rotation and the media came looking for the new ‘boy band’ from far western New South Wales. Till then they’d just been a bunch of passionate kids having fun at a holiday workshop. This book is an illustrated version of the journey taken by those five young boys, their families and their community. It traces their origins from a makeshift recording studio in Wilicania, to centre-stage in front of 20,000 fans at the Homebake Music festival, through to having their song remixed by London based hip hop artist M.I.A and released to an international audience.” (publisher’s blurb)
