Yulugi’ means ‘play, dance or have fun’ in Gamilaroi, one of the Indigenous languages of northern New South Wales.
It is also the name of an inspiring new collaboration between Gumaroy Newman, an Indigenous song man and didgeridoo player descending from the Gamilaroi and Wakka Wakka nations, and Australian composer, pianist and flautist Keyna Wilkins. Two artists who love playing together.
With the beautifully blended colours of flute and didjeridoo, the duo creates an authentic, vivid and contemporary soundscape of Australia. Taking inspiration from nature, dreamlike sequences intertwine with animal mimicry and echoes of tribal lore. Keyna and Gumaroy’s soulful improvisations reveal their special bond and hint at notions of spirituality. The powerful dialogue between cultures that emerges from their playing is nothing short of immersive.
