Summary
The practice of remixing songs to extend the commercial life of a track; criticism of the two versions of the Aboriginal band Yothu Yindi's track 'Treaty'; the extent to which Aboriginal acts are subject to a degree of scrutiny not accorded to mainstream Western musicians; analysis of world music and its entry into the Western popular music mainstream is problematic because of assumptions of similarity and analogousness; non Anglo-Celtic artists not seen as individuals but as representatives of their racial groups; history of production of the song 'Treaty' and the release of a second version; complex process of creating music videos; white film maker Stephen Johnson's flexible approach; cooperation of the Gumatj people in the production; success of the song Treaty and the album Tribal Voices; the Filthy Lucre remix; differences between the Treaty I and Treaty II versions of the song and video clip; awards received; implication that the removal of politically confronting material paid off comercially for the band; meaning of the name 'Yothu Yindi'; denial of artistic and commercial freedom enjoyed by Anglo-Celtic musicians; the positive outcomes of Yothu Yindi's success; Treaty videos produced true to the Yolngu custom; response from Tony Mitchell; use of Treaty II remix in the movie Encino Man; the importance of resisting racist mythologisations of indigenous music
