Spinifex Gum

Spinifex Gum

An all-indigenous female youth choir from North East Australia with dance, visuals, plus a visceral song cycle about ancestry and stewardship. The result? The dazzling phenomenon that is Spinifex Gum.

Energised and energising, Spinifex Gum is an inspiring collaboration that, from Sydney Opera House to the Outback, has put the Yindjibarndi people of the Pilbara region centre stage. Reinforced by powerful visuals, the choir highlights injustice, disenfranchisement, and industrialisation in a show that is nonetheless celebratory, charismatic, and a love letter to Pilbara and its communities. 

‘The performance was so much more than a gig’ declares Xpress Magazine. ‘It was young Aboriginal women stepping front of stage. They told their stories with strength, and even with raised fists they left with a feeling of grace… a must see, musically, culturally, politically, and spiritually’. The Adelaide Review agrees: ‘This is the Australia we live in, and it needs sharp, life-affirming protest songs like Spinifex Gum’s more than ever’.
