Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project

Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project was initially launched in 2017, to celebrate the release of the 25th anniversary remix pack of Yothu Yindi’s “Treaty” and raise awareness for the need for treaty with Australia’s First Nations people.
In this exciting new, electronica-driven formation, founding members of Yothu Yindi - Witiyana Marika, Stu Kellaway and Kevin Malngay Yunupingu are joined onstage by former band members and popular Indigenous singer/ songwriters. The group also features cabaret artist Kamahi Djordon King and emerging Yolngu singers, Yirrnga Yunupingu and Yimila Gurruwiwi.
Rounding out the line-up is multi-instrumentalist Ania Reynolds (the current musical director of Circus Oz), Kellaway's son Roy on guitar, along with DJ/producer Gavin Campbell on additional percussion and the Toraiz SP-16 sampler.
Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project features original Yothu Yindi members, along with emerging First Nations artists and special guests performing new remixes of classic Yothu Yindi hits (courtesy of producers Nubreed, Lostep and Filthy Lucre), plus brand new material, all with an electronic twist in a cross-generational celebration of cultural diversity.
