Indomitable spirit and unbelievable talent, transported from Yolŋu Country
Explore the land of one of Australia’s oldest living cultures. Wanha! immerses audiences in the geographical splendour and dynamic history of an ancient landscape that few get to experience outside of dreams.
Featuring stunning visuals, narration and a combination of sung traditional language and English, this free Forecourt showcase will demonstrate the strength of the music, activism and art that has always come from Arnhem Land–the 65,000 year-old birthplace of cultural and legislative touchstones such as the 1963 Bark Petitions.
Standing on the shoulders of musical giants such as Yothu Yindi, Yolŋu Country has cultivated an international reputation for community excellence in the arts. This is your chance to experience masters of music and language, and the guardians of one of the world’s oldest continuing cultural legacies, as they tour outside the Northern Territory for one of the first times ever.
