The band is fronted by National Indigenous Music Awards New Talent of the Year 2011, Rrawun Maymuru, who also co-wrote Bayini on Gurrumul’s gold-selling album ‘Rrakala.’
East Journey is a blend of contemporary rock, reggae and ballads highlighted with traditional bilma (clapsticks) and yidaki (didgeridoo). They tell ancestralstories in a uniquely different contemporary style that has the ability to engage their audience, no matter whether they are from the city, bush or sea.
Forming some years ago under the direction of front man Rrawun Maymuru, and reforming in 2010 with some new additions, East Journey reflect the manikay (songs) of North East Arnhem Land.
East Journey released their album ‘Guwak’ in April 2012 and have earned a performance slot at the National Indigenous Music Awards in August 2012.
