Candace Kruger, Isobella Kruger & Lann Levinge - Performed by the Yugambeh Youth Choir

Candace Kruger, Isobella Kruger & Lann Levinge - Performed by the Yugambeh Youth Choir

Let’s gather on the sand to experience the spellbinding premiere performance of Morning Star. Evening Star, a Yugambeh Yarrabil Gaureima song and story – the conversation between two stars.

Demonstrating ecological knowledge and the relationship between the land, sea and sky in the Yugambeh language region, this song, passed on by Kombumerri and Ngugi Elder, Lottie Eaton (Levinge), is retold by Candace Kruger, Isobella Kruger and Lann Levinge, and performed by the Yugambeh Youth Choir. Sit with us in the sand circle for this special cultural moment in time and celebrate the magic of First Nations’ storytelling, shared through song.
