The Students of South Lismore Primary in collaboration with Byron Bay not-for-profit, One Vision Productions have just released their latest music video Dance in the Dirt

The clip, released on Sunday, is a high energy, upbeat song that speaks about the kids’ connection to culture and to the land says One Vision’s Ella King.

‘We had the pleasure of inviting local elders to share some stories with us and we incorporated some of this directly into the song,’ she said.

Dance in the Dirt gives an insight into local Aboriginal culture as well as making you want to dance.

‘We want viewers to be immersed in the pride these kids have for their history and feel that sense of community throughout.

The kids filmed some of the clip during a NAIDOC week celebration in Lismore. ‘We would like to thank all the elders who contributed to this video clip,’ said King.

‘We are proud to showcase this video clip and so proud of the kids for expressing their heart and souls on this song’.
