East Journey - Ngarrpiya; (Octopus) Salas/Horvat mix

East Journey - Ngarrpiya; (Octopus) Salas/Horvat mix
Ngarrpiya [Narr-pee-ya] is the first ballad lifted from the positively reviewed EP The Genesis Project – a collaboration with their forefathers Yothu Yindi. East Journey has earned solid radio action across CRN and are championed by Double J who recently listed them in 20 Most Played Australian Artists .

Written by Arian Pearson, the acoustic guitarist for East Journey, Ngarrpiya [Narr-pee-ya] reflects on his relationship with his grandmother. An anthemic rock ballad with gentle yet rippling guitar action. Ngarrpiya is also the octopus; a totem for many Yolngu people, changing colours beneath the sea, and a metaphor for Arian's grandmother - his foundation and support. But really Ngarrpiya is any female presence and demonstrates the Yolngu culture’s deep respect for women.


Rhythms magazine declared the EP “ …will assuredly be among the most significant releases on the Australian Indigenous music front in 2015.”

East Journey made a firm impression with debut album Guwak in 2012. They accrued national airplay, won NIMA awards, gained critical reviews, festival slots, and lead-singer Rrawun Maymuru wrote Bayini giving Gurrumul his first No.1 ARIA Chart. Importantly East Journey established themselves as the No. 1 Indigenous live rock act to watch out for in Australia.
