MUSOMAGIC OUTBACK TRACKS
For over 17 years MusoMagic has been delivering its innovative, music-based programs to young people living in remote indigenous communities, as well as to schools and youth organizations around Australia and the Asia Pacific region. The exciting, high-energy workshops see students work together to write and record an original song and direct and star in their own video clip.
MusoMagic has expanded the reach and impact of these programs with the inspired television series, “MusoMagic Outback Tracks”. Series One, previously broadcast on Imparja Television and now on NITV, introduces its audience to the wide-ranging talents and stories of the youth and members of their communities. The episodes showcase the songs and video clips created by young people with MusoMagic, and complementary segments engage with the community to promote and encourage education (“Learning Rocks!”), employment (“Mob on the Job”), health (“Deadly Healthy”), and leadership and community (“Local Legends”).
MusoMagic Outback Tracks Series Two, supported by the Northern Territory Government, aims to engage young people, their families and communities with more inspired content based on education, employment, health and community leadership. With a focus on Northern Territory schools and communities, Series Two features positive stories from NT communities in alignment with the segment themes.
