DJUKI MALA (LIVE)
DJUKI MALA (LIVE)
Since then, Djuki Mala (Djuki meaning ‘Chooky’ with a Yolgnu accent and Mala meaning mob) have been thrilling audiences and touring extensively both nationally and internationally. The troupe has performed an astounding 700 plus live performances to over 500,000 people in 73 cities and towns in 27 different countries! An amazing achievement for performers coming from one of Australia’s most remote communities.
Djuki Mala’s highly energized dancers present their re-interpretations of pop culture, dance and story-telling, juxtaposing traditional dances with contemporary Yolngu culture.
Embracing a variety of styles, Djuki Mala pay tribute to Motown, Bollywood, techno, hip-hop, breakdance, krumping and classic numbers. There’s a salute with umbrellas, to "Singing in the Rain" against the backdrop of their spectacularly beautiful island home. Michael Jackson’s black suit and spangled glove are slipped into a "Billie Jean" routine, all done with a hefty dose of heart and soul.
Interspersed with multimedia, this retrospective and autobiographical show is a marvel of timing, comedy and clowning and offers a rare and insightful view into Aboriginal Australia, leaving the audience feeling genuinely happy!
Djuki Mala have performed in the movie Bran Nue Dae, ABC TV’s You Can’t Ask That, Secret River, Move It Mob Style, Network Ten’s Totally Wild, Kids WB and at major festivals and events throughout Australia, UK, China, the Pacific, US, Canada, Taiwan, Europe, and the Middle East including Lebanon, Egypt and Cyprus, attracting massive media interest and winning multiple awards and nominations.
