Burad: Tjupurru and the Bulldawadda


TEDxSydney 2014 · 26 April 2014

Burad meaning White Breasted Eagle in the Badjtala language of the Fraser Coast region, is a story that shares the important teaching of how one watches the natural environment in particular the feeding habit of Burad to find where to catch fish. When a group of musical conservationists join forces with the passion to hold onto their ancient musical cultures and language but to fuse it together with 21st century technology, a new band is born – Tjupurru and the Bulldawadda (Bushfire). Featuring the talents of Tjupurru on Didjeribone, FaceBass & Electronics, Fred Leone Vocals, Efiq Zulfiqar on Su ling, flute & jaw harp, and Luke Fabila with Electric Percussion, this freshly formed Indigenous super group presents a cutting edge contemporary sound born from ancient cultures and language. Created from friendship and a shared mission of cultural preservation, Tjupurru and the Bulldawadda's message is as strong and vital as their sound.
