Founded in 2014, Spinifex Gum is an Australian collective that brings together the sound of Marliya - choir of talented young Indigenous women and girls from Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait - the music of Felix Riebl and Ollie McGill (The Cat Empire), and the choreography of Deborah Brown. This stirring MSO performance explores themes of politics, justice, friendship and community. The performers of Spinifex Gum, under the baton of Benjamin Northey, share stories of the Yindjibarndi people in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, encouraging us to connect with our First Nations narratives. As Classic Melbourne noted, ‘The combination of striking images, kaleidoscopic lighting, the bringing together of so many disparate musical parts into a coherent whole … made this performance of Spinifex Gum an experience that will continue to resonate in our lives.' This release on MSO.LIVE marks the observance of NAIDOC Week and honours its theme 'For our Elders'.
