As evinced by Yothu Yindi’s success in the 1990’s, Indigenous music, song and

dance are powerful tools of protest.


The current national conversation surrounding Indigenous affairs and recent wave of new generation artists keeping the message and culture alive; such as A.B.Original, Baker Boy, Kardajala Kirridarra, Electric Fields, not to mention the recent successful reformation tour of Midnight Oil, stalwart supporters of the cause, have made it clear that now is the time for this iconic outfit to renew their involvement in that protest.


To that end, Razor Recordings has launched an exciting new live show called Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project, designed to raise awareness and rally support across Australia for the need for treaty with Australia’s First Nations people; to celebrate Indigenous culture and to foster opportunities for emerging Indigenous artists. Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project was inspired by the new remix package celebrating the 25th anniversary of ‘Treaty (Filthy Lucre Remix), which resulted in ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Yothu Yindi reuniting with Gavin Campbell, founding member of production team Filthy Lucre, in a reinvigorated formation.. The outfit features original Yothu Yindi members, along with emerging First Nations artists and special guests, performing impressive new remixes of classic Yothu Yindi hits (courtesy of Nubreed, Lostep and Filthy Lucre), plus brand new material, all with an electronic twist in a cross-generational celebration of cultural diversity.


This unique, bespoke ensemble has already garnered widespread interest following

a string of exclusive appearances at Strawberry Fields Festival, Queenscliff Music

Festival, Homeground at Sydney Opera House, Enmore Theatre and Croxton

Bandroom, with anticipation high for their forthcoming Festival 2018 concert on theopening night of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
