Enjoy a performance by THE ILLUME Girls

As part of City of Ryde's 2020 NAIDOC Week digital celebrations, The ILLUME Girls performed in two sets of original music in their studio.

With a powerful presence, these women deliver emotive and soulful music described as "smokey honey" with singing both in Yolngu matha and English. The ILLUME Girls are key members of the Gambirra Mob that perform at festivals such as Splendour In The Grass.
