When a group of musical conservationists join forces with the passion to hold onto their ancient musical cultures and language - but to fuse it together with 21st century technology, a new band is born – Yarwah.

Featuring the talents of Tjupurru on Didjeribone, FaceBass & Electronics, Fred Leone; vocals, Efiq Zulfiqar on Su-ling, flute & jaw harp and Luke Fabila with electric percussion, this freshly formed Indigenous super group presents a cutting edge contemporary sound born from ancient cultures and language.

Yawah perform a mix of electronic dubstep/trance, and hip hop laced with West Javanese instruments and Aboriginal language and chants. 

Created from friendship and a shared mission of cultural preservation, Yarwah’s message is as strong and vital as their sound.
