BY Heapsaflash | 03-Jul-2018
Brisbane Festival, in association with The Tivoli, presents YOTHU YINDI AND THE TREATY PROJECT supported by YIRRMAL!
Featuring original members of ARIA Hall of Fame inductees, Yothu Yindi and The Treaty Project with special guests serve up classic hits as well as brand new material, all with an electronic twist in a cross-generational, cultural celebration.
The bespoke ensemble is inspired by the recent remix package marking the 25th anniversary of ‘Treaty-Filthy Lucre Remix’ and sees Yothu Yindi founding members – Witiyana Marika, Stu Kellaway and Kevin Malngay Yunupingu – joined onstage by former band mates Shellie Morris and Ben Hakalitz and popular Indigenous singer/songwriters Yirrmal (son of Witiyana), Dhapanbal (daughter of late frontman Dr M. Yunupingu) and Kamahi Djordon King. Rounding out the line-up is emerging Yolngu singers Yirrnga Yunupingu and Yimila Gurruwiwi, along with Roy Kellaway (son of Stu Kellaway), Ania Reynolds (Circus Oz) and DJ Gavin Campbell (Filthy Lucre).
