Hall of Fame inductees Yothu Yindi reunite with Gavin Campbell, founding member of Filthy Lucre in a bespoke formation featuring original Yothu Yindi members and special guests under the moniker Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project, as a cross-generational celebration of cultural diversity.
This not-to-be-missed performance will take place at the Croxton Bandroom on Sunday 19 November.
It will be the first Melbourne show after the ensemble debuts at Strawberry Fields Festival, performing the band’s classic hits as well as brand new material, all with an electronic twist!
Founding Yothu Yindi members Witiyana Marika, Stuart Kellaway and Malangay Yunupingu will be joined by the popular Indigenous singer/songwriters Yirrmal, Constantina Bush and Yirrnga Yunupinga.
Young Yolngu artist Yirrmal, is the son of Witiyana, while Bush is the larger-than-life, burlesque performing alter-ego of celebrated Indigenous artist and performer Kamahi Djordon King.
Rounding out the line-up is new vocalist and Yunupingu clan member Yirrnga, also joined by keyboard player and saxophonist Ania Reynolds and Megan Bernard on guitar, with both also on vocals.
Meanwhile a planned remix album to be released on Bloodlines in early 2018 is taking shape from the Yothu Yindi archive with some rarely sighted international remixes of Yothu Yindi hit songs including William Orbit, K Klass and Dario G remixes of ‘Treaty’
the David Burnham remix of ‘Djapana’
and the Angelique Cooper remix of ‘World Turning’
amongst many others.
Special guest at the Croxton Bandroom show will be acclaimed indigenous singer/songwriter Benny Walker performing his compelling solo-acoustic repertoire.
Gavin Campbell will keep the party going after his band mates leave the stage with one of his legendary DJ sets.
