Featuring official performances of the Yugambeh Didgeridoo Orchestra and Yugambeh Youth Choir, this event showcases the region’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural products and services.
The Yugambeh Community is developing a professional Didgeridoo Orchestra to perform at significant Yugambeh Mobo community events and in preparation for the Commonwealth Games and beyond.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth under 25 years of age will perform in Yugambeh language, including the national anthem. Gold Coast’s leading choir master, Candace Kruger, will be facilitating and developing this group, with a view to international recognition.
