Biography

Yothu Yindi (Yolngu for mother and child) is an Australian band with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal members. The Aboriginal members come from near Yirrkala on the Gove Peninsula in the Northern Territory's Arnhem Land. The band tries to combine aspects of both musical cultures. Their sound varies from traditional Aboriginal songs which are literally thousands of years old to modern pop and rock songs. In almost all their songs they try to blend the typical instruments that are associated with pop/rock bands, such as guitars and drums, with the traditional didgeridoo and clapsticks. They also adapted traditional dance to accompany their music. In a broader sense they promote the need for mutual respect and understanding in the coming together of different cultures.

    Well I heard it on the radio
    And I saw it on the television

    I've been looking for you
    Searching for something new
    You keep my feet on the ground
    As you make my world turn around
    Keep sending me signals

    Lyrics
    Reflection in the water I see
    Six pretty girls on my mind today
    Yellow foam floating down the river
    Voices I hear of Yolngu heroes
    Go go go go living in the mainstream
