Razor Recordings is proud to announce one Melbourne show for Yothu Yindi and The Treaty Project at the Croxton Band Room on Sunday, November 19. Inspired by the new remix package celebrating the 25th anniversary of “Treaty (Filthy Lucre Remix)”, ARIA 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 who make up The Treaty Project, performing the band’s classic hits as well as brand new material, all with an electronic twist, as a cross-generational celebration of cultural diversity.
Founding members Witiyana Marika, Stuart Kellaway and Malngay Yunupingu will be joined by the popular Indigenous singer/songwriters Yirrmal, Constantina Bush and Yirrnga Yunupingu. 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.
This will be the first Melbourne show after the ensemble debuts at Strawberry Fields Festival. Special guest will be acclaimed Indigenous singer/songwriter Benny Walker performing his compelling solo-acoustic repertoire. Gavin Campbell will keep the party going after his bandmates leave the stage with one of his legendary DJ sets.
Yothu Yindi released their timeless hit, “Treaty” in 1991 as a protest against a broken promise by the Hawke Government. Clearly, the time is now for the band to once again hit the road, raising awareness for the need for treaty. Treaty yeah, treaty NOW!
