Sometimes a musical revolution can explode from the most unlikely of places. Since bursting onto stages and airwaves in the late 1980s, Yothu Yindi - the ARIA hall of famers and pioneering band from North East Arnhem Land - have continued to break boundaries with their music. With sounds stretching from tribal Yolngu beats and vocals to contemporary electronica and thumping rock n' roll, a political heart beats throughout it all. Still touring tirelessly with original members and fresh talent from the next generation, audiences know Yothu Yindi for their legendary stage shows that inject new fire into classics.
With debut album Black Thoughts released independently in 2020, during the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, Ziggy - full name Ziggy Ramo Burrmuruk Fatnowna - established himself as one of Australia's most vital voices. This year, he's followed that up with triple j feature album Sugar Coated Lies, melding his truth-telling and raw, personal lyrics with radio ready hooks.
