Synopsis

Album Description
Out of print for sometime, the classic Yothu Yindi album 'Tribal Voice' is now available, features the worldwide hit 'Treaty'. With the 1991 release of their second album, Tribal Voice , Yothu Yindi secured their place in the annals of Australian rock history. Tribal Voice, which dominated the national charts for much of 1991- 1992, yielded the hit singles Treaty and Djapana, won the band recognition as the first predominantly Aboriginal act to gain widespread media attention, and generated international recording and touring commitments. `Treaty' was also the first song in an Aboriginal language (Gumatj) to gain extensive airplay and international recognition.

Top notch
Edward Bosnar | 03/07/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yothu Yindicannot be put into the watered-down, new-age inspired "world music" category despite the aboriginal background of most band members. There are no synthesizers backing up a few notes on some "indigenous" instruments here; "Tribal Voice" is not easy listening. Instead, it's hard-hitting, full-throttle rock, with a powerful merger of aboriginal (esp. the didgeridoo) and more conventional instruments. The result is some really fresh and unique music that can't quite be compared to anything else - not even fellow Aussie rockers Midnight Oil, even though their political stance is quite similar. Yothu Yindi has done a great job of skillfully melding traditional sounds with rock and a relevant message."

"No long winded recommendation here. Yothu Yindi rock and deliver their messages with undeniable spirit, joy, elan. Traditional tribal music and then wow! Reggie a little bit, some memories of the guitar from the Ventures, some headbanging tunes, some dance tunes and even a dance mix of Treaty Now. Thank you guys, you are amazing. Here's hoping some day you make it to the US for a tour. Ned Hamson, Cincinnati, Ohio"
