“Well I heard it on the radio and I saw it on the television….” Yothu Yindi is a groundbreaking Aboriginal rock band from the Yolngu Aboriginal lands of Australia’s Northern Territory. Founded in 1986 by the sons of Aboriginal tribal elders, the band blended Western rock songs with Aboriginal song forms and traditional instruments such as the didgeridoo and professed a simultaneous message of Aboriginal cultural revival and multicultural harmony. Their “Treaty” was the first internationally popular song in an Aboriginal language (Gumatj).
