  • Profile

    Join a joyous celebration 60,000 years in the making. Direct from Elcho Island, Djuki Mala (Djuki meaning ‘bird’ with a Yolngu accent and Mala meaning ‘mob’) perform a high-energy and stunning fusion of traditional Indigenous culture, contemporary dance, and storytelling.

    Since their 2007 clip of ‘Zorba the Greek’ went viral, they’ve been consistently thrilling audiences with reinterpretations of popular culture and traditional dances in a way that juxtaposes contemporary Yolngu culture.

    The show tells the genesis of Djuki Mala, interspersed with multimedia and gives audiences the opportunity to experience some of the more intimate moments and turning points that have shaped them, in a show that is a marvel of timing, comedy, and clowning, with a hefty dose of heart and soul.
