The Yothu Yindi dance classic ‘Treaty’ featuring Gavin Campbell has been updated to include Baker Boy and Dhapanbal Yunupingu, the daughter of Dr M. Yunupingu.
The new edition of the song was produced by Jerome Farah, with additional vocal production and percussion by Filthy Lucre and mixed by Tony Espie and features three sections of rap, as written and performed by Baker Boy and Dallas Woods.
Gavin Campbell said in a statement, “When Jerome sent me his first draft of this version of Treaty, it conjured up that same feeling of excitement I had when Robert Goodge, Paul Main and I finished work on our Filthy Lucre remix all those years ago.”
“In addition to featuring such a stellar artist as Baker Boy, Razor is very proud to be highlighting young singers from our new live show Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project, particularly Dr M’s daughter Dhapanbal. Let’s start the chant again!”
This version of the song was recently previewed at the 30th anniversary of the Barunga Statement celebration at this year’s Barunga Festival on Queen’s Birthday Weekend.
The song is available on Gavin Campbell’s Razor Recordings.
