Going Wanhurr and East Journey

Under the direction of Bangarra performer DjakapurraMunyarryun the dance is a two-way experience. Linking Western and Yol?u cultures, and knowledge together through dance or Bungull and Manikay songs that share the ideas and the philosophy of country and culture and how our culture and napaki (non-Indigenous) should live together.

The Yol?u were among Australia’s earliest international traders, maintaining trade and cultural exchanges with the Macassans for six centuries.

This diverse group represent the clans of the Dhalinbuy region in North East Arnhem land and have toured the globe with their performances and Yidaki playing.  Featuring members of contemporary band East Journey, this displays the magic of intergenerational exchange and connections through dance and music.
