ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Heart of Australia” is a song which was written and recorded by the award-winning South African recording artist, Louise du Toit, for the wild horses of Australia, widely known as the Brumbies.

Based on an original poem by Laura Kett, a young Australian girl who loves these divine horses with heart and soul, the lyrics depict the wonderful free spirit of the Brumbies; so unjustifiably persecuted, so sadly subjected to immense suffering at the hands of humans. These magnificent animals are superior to humans in many ways; yet, the latter continues to treat them with the utmost disrespect, diminishing them to mere objects, brutally mass-murdering them in the name of so-called conservation, slowly pushing them to definite extinction.

As an experienced composer, lyricist and performer, Louise du Toit is well aware that music can touch the heart and soul, where many other ways might fail. She has chosen to use her songs and her voice to spread a worldwide message of peace and environmental and wildlife preservation, working towards the well-being of all living creatures on earth. "Heart of Australia" is a powerful addition to her growing collection of advocating songs. It is an honest and sincere artistic contribution to the fight for the survival of the Brumbies, aiming to raise awareness for and to spread a positive message towards their ultimate protection. For the full biography of Louise, visit her ARTIST PAGE.

There are many worthy organizations and also individuals who support the cause of the Brumbies, but this specific song is linked to the admirable HOOFS2010 Inc - a wonderful non-profit Australian organization dedicated to protect them, tirelessly working towards their ultimate survival. With the consent of both Louise and Laura, the income of the sales of this single will be forwarded to HOOFS2010 Inc, as a donation to endorse the funds needed to save as many Brumbies as possible.

During the past two years, Louise du Toit has written and created more than thirty songs and videos for various animal rights organizations, all aimed at raising awareness about the plight of animals in their struggle for survival. Her videos can be seen at her YouTube channel, with her video for the Brumbies, with the same title as the single, also included in the list.
