Arrarnta people are renowned for their creativity and artistry. Since the days of the first missionaries Arrarnta voices have been raised in song in a magical mix of English and Western Arrarnta language. The watercolour traditions of Namatjira and his followers need no introduction and innovation continues through the work of contemporary painters and potters.
The records of the mission often mention the beautiful sounds of the Arrarnta people with their voices raised in song. Hermannsburg Mission has a long tradition of music including both pastoral music and popular country and western.
