Formed in 1986 with Yolngu (Aboriginal) and Balanda (non Aboriginal) members, Yothu Yindi crossed the cultural divide by blending musical aspects of both indigenous and non indigenous cultures, creating a sound that was truly unique and one that has had a lasting impact on both the musical and political landscape in Australia and around the world. Combining the sounds and instrumentation of western rock 'n' roll with songs and performances that date back tens of thousands of years, Yothu Yindi took the ancient song cycles of north-east Arnhem Land - featuring such traditional instruments as the bilma (ironwood clapsticks) and yidaki (didgeridoo or hollow log) and juxtaposed them with western pop sounds to present a true musical meeting of two diverse cultures. They took traditional Yolngu dance performances and worked them into the context of contemporary performance.
The result is a band that's been hailed as "the most powerful blend of indigenous and modern music to emerge from the world music scene".
With the 1991 release of their second album, Tribal Voice, Yothu Yindi secured their place in the annals of Australian rock history.

"HEALING STONE" is the first new song by Yothu Yindi in 12 years. Co-written by Mandawuy and INXS tunesmith Andrew Farriss, it's as culturally urgent, profoundly personal and ultimately universal as any song in the world-renowned Arnhem Land band's 27-year history.
"HEALING STONE" is also the title track of this new compilation assembled to celebrate Yothu Yindi's November 2012 induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame.The other 16 songs span five albums released between 1988 and 2000, from the game-changing Filthy Lucre mix of "Treaty" to the shimmering Neil Finn collaboration "Dots On the Shells"; from the triple ARIA-winning "Djapana" to the earlier Andrew Farriss co-write, "Superhighway".
