Abstract

This chapter explores the relationship between Christian choral singing, Australian Aboriginal identities, age and wellbeing, drawing on an ethnomusicological applied, practice research project undertaken in collaboration with the Lutheran Australian Aboriginal community of Hopevale, Northern Queensland in 2004-2005. The ethnomusicological field data are complemented by theory and research published in different disciplines showing how singing can positively influence wellbeing cross-culturally. It will also show how age, as a variable, impacts the efficacy of choral singing in promoting wellbeing in an Australian Indigenous Christian context.
