Students at a remote West Australian high school have harnessed the power of hip hop in their track Bounce Back.

The song deals with values of resilience and respect, and shows how hip hop culture can help indigenous communities deal with issues like health and substance use.

Indigenous Hip Hop Projects facilitated the program and hopes to spread its work to more parts of Australia to empower these communities.
