Reflections & Voices - exploring the music of Yothu Yindi with Mandawuy Yunupingu.
With contributions by Marcia Langton, Allan Marett, Melinda Sawers & Galarrwuy Yunupingu.
In the early 1990s, the Australian band Yothu Yindi rose to national prominence with hit songs like 'Treaty' and 'Djapana' that would become part of Australia's cultural fabric. In this book, Aaron Corn takes readers on a captivating journey with Mandawuy Yunupingu through the ideas and events behind some of Yothu Yindi's best know songs. Together they locate the band within a continuum of traditional practice that records the beauty of Arnhem Land as experienced by Mandawuy's ancestors, and has guided local engagements with visitors from across the Arafura Sea for countless centuries.
