Yothu Yindi - Tribal Voice 

With the 1991 release of their second album, Tribal Voice, Yothu Yindi secured their place in the annals of Australian rock history. Tribal Voice, which dominated the national charts for much of 1991-92, yielded the hit singles Treaty and Djapana, won the band recognition as the first predominately-Aboriginal act to gain widespread media attention, and generated international recording and touring commitments.

The album featured the band’s first hit single, Treaty, which crashed into the Australian Top Twenty and spent 22 weeks in the national charts. The first song by a predominately-Aboriginal band to chart in Australia, it was also the first song in an Aboriginal language (Gumatj) to gain extensive airplay and international recognition.

Treaty was voted Song of the Year at the APRA (Australian Performing Rights Association) awards for 1991. It picked up the Human Rights Commission’s award for songwriting. At the ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association) Awards, Treaty was voted Australian Record of the Year and Best Australian Single. The film clip directed and shot by Stephen Michael Johnson of Burrundi Pictures was named Best Australian Video at the Australian Music Awards and took out the same title at the MTVInternational Awards in Los Angeles. The Tribal Voice album, voted Best Indigenous Record at the 1992 ARIA awards, has now clocked up multi-platinum Australian sales and has been instrumental in breaking the band throughout the world. - mushroommusic.com
