As Paul Kelly sings so memorably : “From little things, big things grow”. This choral concert brings together young people from Canberra’s own singing community together with the Djinama Yilaga choir from the Yuin community down the coast. They sing about our home, our land, our sky, our people.

Artist Djinama Yilaga Choir

READ MORE
The Djinama Yilaga Choir is an intergenerational Yuin choir, established in 2019 and led by renowned Walbunga/Ngarigo artist, Cheryl Davison. Djinama Yilaga perform songs in Dhurga language. Yuin people were often multi-lingual, speaking and understanding languages of neighbouring and visiting groups. Dhurga was spoken and understood by many within the 13 tribes of the Yuin Nation. It was the dominant tongue of the Walbunga people of the Broulee region and the Brindja Yuin people of Moruya. The choir emerged as a mechanism to revitalise language through song, following a unique pedagogy established by Westpac scholar, Dr Lou Bennett AM.  The community-led project, supported by Dr Lou Bennett was initially funded by the National Museum of Australia and Four Winds, Bermagui. The choir has gone from strength to strength and is continually requested to perform at local and national events.
