Banawurun


The Nightwatch Tour

With roots deep within the red soils of Indigenous Australia and Africa, Deadly Award Winners Banawurun are set to embark on a massive 20+ date national tour. Crossing from coast to coast, beach to bush, the Nightwatch Tour is set to see Banawurun announce themselves across the nation.

Having won the hearts of Australian audiences with a string of acclaimed festival performances, The Nightwatch Tour sees the Brisbane five-piece step onto the national stage to deliver the next installment of their soulful future roots and hypnotic outback Motown.

As those who have seen them in the flesh will know, this is first and foremost a live band and it is on stage that the magic truly happens. Distinctly Australian yet internationally focused, Banawurun make music for movement – as infectiously danceable as it is socially and politically charged.

Recently re-named by a Gu Gu Yelangi Elder, Banawurun (meaning “running water” and formerly known as Troy ‘n’ Trevelyn & The Tribe) was formed in 2004 by aboriginal man Troy Brady and Matabele Zimbabwean woman Trevelyn Brady. The band serves as a vehicle for bringing awareness and change to social inequalities by promoting through their music a message of equality and freedom.

Of course, whilst distinctly home grown in nature, Banawurun’s songs are universally relevant. This was confirmed with the bands 2006 tour to the US, which culminated in a showcase performance at the world famous Viper Room in Los Angeles as part of MUSEXPO. Here delegates and press affectionately labeled Banawurun “The poster children of Australia”.

Musically rooted within the cultures of the two singer songwriters, Banawurun takes the baton from iconic acts like Yothu Yindi and the Warumpi Band, fusing traditional indigenous instruments and ideas with new roots music sensibilities. With three EP’s released throughout 2007 – each with the expert production of ARIA award winning producer Paulie B (George, The Beautiful Girls) – This upcoming national tour serves as a teaser and precursor to band’s debut full-length release.

There is no band whose distinctly Australian, culturally vital and sonically powerful music stands to represent the new roots music movement like Banawurun’s does.
