Socially Distanced Events for Just a Few People
"The end result wasn’t just cross-cultural, but also cross-artform....an immersive, new contemporary Australian art music." Cultural Omnivore
Yulugi is a fresh collaboration between Gumaroy Newman, an Indigenous song man and didjeridu player descending from the Gamilaroi and Wakka Wakka nations of northern NSW, Keyna Wilkins, a British-Australian composer and musician (piano/flute) often with special guest dancers. Yulugi is a dialogue across cultures, inspired by the Australian landscape and animals, with vivid dance and music. The word 'Yulugi' means play, dance or have fun in Gamilaroi. The sonic scapes created are a melting pot of indigenous and western sounds and textures, exploring spiritual awakening through structured improvisations. Stylistically broad, this duo will take you on a journey into the heart of Australia with dream-like sequences alongside landscape depictions and animal mimicry and echoes of tribal lores, drawing on a myriad of musical influences, to create a unique and authentic soundscape of Australia.
Though formed early 2019, Yulugi have had and have numerous successful shows around Australia including at Woodford Folk Festival 2019 and opening the Australian Flute Festival at Sydney Conservatorium Verbruggen Hall in July 2019. Performances in 2020 include Melbourne Recital Centre, MONA, Brett Whitely Gallery, Now Now Festival, Pheonix Central Park and many more.
Gumaroy is an indigenous performer, yidaki (didjeridu) player, traditional song man, poet, MC and cultural educator. He has performed around the world in ceremonies and concerts alike including at festivals such as Glastonbury, Vancouver Folk and Woodford Folk and has worked with His Holiness The Dalai Lama and artists such as Arrested Development, Ganga Giri, Shane Howard and Shannon Knowle.
Keyna Wilkins is an international pioneering flutist, pianist and composer and one of three national finalists in the APRA/AMCOS Art Music Awards for Individual Excellence 2018.
ONLY 19 people at each concert. Bar and event menu on offer, mulled wine and hot toddies recommended.
