The Yabu Band - Mt kind of life

The Yabu Band - Mt kind of life
The Yabu Band recorded by community station, Radio Adelaide, as part of 2011's WOMADelaide festival.

With a befitting name, which is a Wogutha word for "rock," Yabu Band is made up of brothers Delson (vocals) and Boyd Stokes (guitar) with Jade Masters(drums). Live they are joined by Roy Martinez (bass) and Lilly Gogos (vocals) Tony Shaw (didgeridoo) and Tim Ayre (keyboards).

The band won a Deadly award in 2009 for Most Promising New Talent in Music, while Delson Stokes was the 1999 NAIDOC male youth of the year.

WOMADelaide features performances and workshops on seven stages by the world's best musicians, dancers and DJs, alongside street theatre artists and visual artists, the popular Taste the World cooking program, Artists in Conversations sessions and an All-Star Gala finale.

About this track...
