BUNGGUL

Gurrumul's Mothers Bunggul
Gurrumul's Grandmother’s Bunggul
Gurrumul's Manikay

Yolngu don’t have books or computers. They carry it here (in the heart) in their song, their dance, their paintings.  – Don Wininba Ganambarr

A Bunggul is a ceremony, a gathering ground: A meeting place of dance, song and ritual. 

Created on country in North East Arnhem Land with the Yunupingu family, Bunggul is a ceremonial celebration of one of the transcendent albums of our time. A production of immense Yolngu spirit, it invites us to experience the traditional songs, dances and paintings that inspired Gurrumul’s final album, Djarrimirri (Child of the Rainbow), in a live performance by Yolngu dancers, Songmen and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra. 

Just as Gurrumul’s music opened a doorway into Yolngu culture, Bunggul is an invitation to further experience the depth, strength, beauty of his world.


The performance on Saturday 8 February will be Audio Described, with an optional Tactile Tour at 6pm. Please pre-book directly via the Perth Festival Access Line (6488 8616) to use this service.
