Originally launched in 2017 to celebrate the release of the 25th anniversary of Yothu Yindi's timeless hit Treaty and to raise awareness for the need for treaty, Yothu Yindi & the Treaty Project is back. 

Featuring original Yothu Yindi members, along with emerging First Nations artists and special guests performing new remixes of classic Yothu Yindi hits with an electronic twist, Yothu Yindi & the Treaty Project make its Arts Centre Melbourne debut at Hamer Hall Saturday May 4

As evinced by Yothu Yindi's success in the 90s, Indigenous music, song and dance are poweful tools of protest. The current national conversation surrounding Indigenous affairs and recent wave of new generation artists are keeping the mesage and culture alive - such as A.B. Original, Baker Boy, Kardajala Kirridarra, Electric Fields and 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 projest. 

In addition to Yothu Yindi & the Treaty Project, Dis rupt, a free youth-driven blak intervention, will take over the iconic venue's foyer spaces from 4 to 8pm as part of the YIRRAMBOI Festival

Tune into The Breakfast Spread Wednesday morning from 8am to hear DJ and producer, Gavin Campbell, speaking with the State of The Art team about the project.
