Summary
"Formed in 1986 with Yolngu (Aboriginal) and Balanda (non Aboriginal) members, Yothu Yindi crossed the cultural divide by blending musical aspects of both indigenous and non indigenous cultures, creating a sound that was truly unique and one that has had a lasting impact on both the musical and political landscape in Australia and around the world. Combining the sounds and instrumentation of western rock 'n' roll with songs and performances that date back tens of thousands of years, Yothu Yindi took the ancient song cycles of north-east Arnhem Land - featuring such traditional instruments as the bilma (ironwood clapsticks) and yidaki (didgeridoo or hollow log) and juxtaposed them with western pop sounds to present a true musical meeting of two diverse cultures. They took traditional Yolngu dance performances and worked them into the context of contemporary performance."--
