To mark the 25th Anniversary of the Treaty (Filthy Lucre Remix) three of Australia’s most important live acts are coming together for a special one night only event. Taking to the stage will be; Yothu Yindi And The Treaty Project, The Herd and last but certainly not least Baker Boy.
With these three acts Gavin Campbell of Filthy Lucre hopes to be able to create a platform to raise awareness and bring young talent through.
“You have no idea how nice this feels. There are messages that need to be said by both the young and the old so being able to bring them together for this show is so special.” Campbell explained.
Sadly last year the world lost Doctor Gurrumul Yunipingu which many would think could have tempered the excitement levels for this show. According to Campbell however Doctor G Yunipungu’s passing has actually added a new level of spirituality to the show.
“Yirrmal Marika and Ania Reynolds have written a tribute song to Doctor G which isn’t as dancy as the rest of the show but it may actually be the show stopper.” Campbell told us before adding, “If anything I think Doctor G’s passing has enhanced the spirituality and connection of the show as he is very much at the forefront of the show.”
Whilst this show is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Filthy Lucre remix of Treaty there has also been a brand new set of remixes created.
“We’ve remixed six or seven classic Yothu Yindi songs,” explained Campbell, “They’ve all been created by respected and mature producers though so they have a sophisticated sound rather than simply being loud electronic dance music.”
In order to showcase the new remixes/songs in the best way possible this show will bring together a truly unique mixture of artists and cultures.
“The show includes modern live musicians on keyboards, guitar and bass alongside traditional Aboriginal musical elements and ceremonies.”
If you’re in or around Sydney on Friday evening this is one concert experience certainly worth going out of your way to see.
