Direct from winning the 2016 national Aboriginal Dance Rites competition and delivering a 14 hour smoking ceremony and dance performance as Sydney’s official caretakers of the fire-sticks and and smoking ceremony on Australia Day, at which Koomurri trek the fire across Sydney Harbour from the Tribal Warrior landing at Barangaroo and setting off by foot to the Sydney Opera House continually smoking the people and land with eucalyptus leaves while cleansing of bad spirits in ready for new beginnings live to one million people in ’17.

 

Koomurri have represented aboriginal culture at the Sydney and Athens Olympiad, Rugby Union World Cup France, Fifa World Cup Germany and opened multiple AFL and Rugby League Indigenous rounds and now bring their east coast corroboree, culture, song, didgeridoo & dance for the first time to Adelaide Fringe Festival at two great venues.

 

With members hailing from a variety of clans including the Kamilaroi Peoples of northern NSW celebrating with Yibadhaa Gambuu Dreaming (Red Belly Black Snake), Sea Turtle Dreaming from the Torres Straits, Bunya Dreaming of the Gubbi Gubbi People on the Sunshine Coast of Qld, Mununjali Mibin Dreaming (Wedge Tail Eagle) from west of the Gold Coast & Yuin Peoples of Southern NSW Umbarra Dreaming (Black Duck), Koomurri demonstrate their love of sharing cultures, revitalise their traditional skin markings, making of their costumes & reinvigorate the crafts of their ancestors live on stage.

 

Koomurri implement these traditions with a mix of traditional culture and contemporary dance brought to life by our deadly Koomurri dancers, lead by Koomurri cultural leader Russell Dawson and complimented by some of Australia's most exciting Didgeridoo players and our indigenous language song-man Cecil Mcleod.
