"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 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.
