Yirinda

Step inside the Outdoor Stage for an intimate performance of Yirinda’s self-titled debut album, filled with powerful melodies. 

Yirinda seamlessly combine ancient Aboriginal language with sublime modern production. Fred Leone and Samuel Pankhurst’s music invokes thousands of generations of story and culture, while emerging as something entirely new. 

The album sets Fred’s powerful vocals against striking experimental soundscapes, rich with strings, horns, double bass, synthesizer, piano and percussion. The result is otherworldly, a timeless art music outside Western convention. 

Fred is one of three Butchulla Songmen - a song and language custodian for the Butchulla people from the Fraser Coast region of Queensland, including K’gari (formerly known as Fraser Island). He sings the songs on this album in the endangered Butchulla language, now spoken by only a handful of people. Samuel is an internationally acclaimed contrabassist/producer known for his kaleidoscopic harmonies and polyrhythmic mastery. 

‘A cinematic, sumptuous bridge from past to present and beyond.’ - Giselle Nguyen, The Guardian  
‘An intriguing combination of experimental soundscapes, Butchulla culture and tradition, fine instrumentation and gorgeous vocals’ - Tone Deaf
