A day of celebration marks the anniversary of the official hand back of Nitmiluk to Jawoyn people and recognition of their traditional connection to the land, and the beginning of a successful partnership with the NT Government.
A special performance will come from new generation artist Yirrmal Marika who hails from Yirrkala in north east Arnhem Land. Inspired by his grandfather and the former lead singer of Yothu Yindi, Dr Yunupingu.
He fuses traditional and contemporary arrangements with class and passion.
Yirrmal is an inspiring songwriter and guitarist with a beautiful voice, singing songs about his homeland and culture with feeling and depth beyond his years.
