Sneaky Jesus songs: 'Blackfella/ Whitefella' by Warumpi Band

Staff |  31 May 2016

A ‘Sneaky Jesus song’ might not be a religious tune, but when you listen to the lyrics it could easily be mistaken for one.

'Blackfella/Whitefella' by Warumpi Band is a song about forgetting the colour of another’s skin, where they come from or their religion. All that matters is their authenticity. The song becomes a call to action for people no matter their race, creed or class to stand up for what they believe in. Just as in our faith, we are no longer individuals; we are one body in Christ.
