    Balga Boy Jackson is the long-awaited new story of Mudrooroo. He returns to his roots to give us a vivid life story of an Australian Black Boy - naturally with a pun, Balga is the Australian grass tree called in Western Australia the Black Boy. Mudrooroo, who hails from Cuballing in the West, takes us on Balga Boy's journey to Fitzroy and Kings Cross. The late '50s and early '60s come alive through Balga's own blues and musical journey, and he says, 'This is how it was for a lot of us'.
