YULUGI: Chasing Stars To The Mother Tree
The album concept is based on the Gamilaroi star-lore myth that Berriberri (or the constellation Orion) set out in pursuit of the Miai-miai (or the star cluster Pleiades) and cornered them in a mother tree where they were transformed into yellow and white cockatoos. Yulugi is a collaboration between leading didgeridoo player Gumaroy Newman and composer-musician Keyna Wilkins. www.yulugi.com
Reviewed by Sydney Morning Herald: "Yulugi is Instantly engaging, with Gumaroy Newman's arresting voice and yidaki, leading us deep into his ancestral culture, in dialogue with Keyna Wlkins' piano and luminous flutes."
Reviewed by Fine Music FM: "This is virtuoso playing, worthy of any Australian collection."
