The didjeridu calls to all to come together, to learn from and listen to one another.
It is heard at Gulkula, near Nhulunbuy in north east Arnhem Land, as about 2,000 indigenous and non-indigenous Australians and international visitors gather for the annual Garma Festival. Garma is a Yolngu word that describes a 'two-way learning process'. Yolngu culture is one of the oldest living cultures on earth, stretching back over 40,000 years, and the Garma Festival is a celebration of that Yolngu cultural inheritance.
Garma is regarded as Australia's major indigenous cultural exchange event. It provides a unique opportunity to share knowledge and culture, by experiencing and being directly involved in a spectacular display of cultural practice and cross cultural learning, a unique line up of entertainment, education and real cultural interaction.
This years festival will be a reduced to a two day event and ticket availability will be severely limited.Visit Website
