Garrmalang Festival back this Dry


The Top End's dry season will again start in the most fitting way with the Garrmalang Festival, a celebration of the artistic richness of Indigenous culture.

Garrmalang, the Larrakia name for what is not the city centre, will be staged at the Darwin Performing Arts Centre in May.

It will start with Bunngal, a collection of dances performed at the opening of Indigenous ceremonies for thousands of years. The performance will be by the Larrakia's Kenbi Dancers, Gary Lang NT Dance Company, and traditional dances from the remote communities of Yirrkala and Milingimbi.

Dancing will continue in the evening with YouTube dance sensations Djuki Mala, who have thrilled audiences around the world since their hilarous Zorba The Greek show went viral in 2007.

The all female Hot Brown Honey will also make an appearance boasting a stellar posse of phenomenal women in a daring celebration of similarities and differences.

Garrmalang is on at the Darwin Entertainment Centre from May 26-28. More shows will be announced soon. For a full program visit
