=> Yothu Yindi song - Macassan crew

Video : www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp4hG8…
Lyrics :www.lyrics.m106.com/s79914,Yot…

Yendharama birrapirra

Tradewinds blow
The southern cross
Taking their prau
Across the sea
They came in peace
Through the Ashmore Reef
Smoke and steel
And the Tamarind seed

Steer it up right
Steer it up true
Navigate the morning star
Brave Macassan crew

Sailed on through
The hole in the wall
The place we call Rarrakala
To the shores of the far North East
Smoke, steel and the Tamarind tree

Gapala Mangatjay
Gapala Gurrumulnga

Navigate the morning star
Brave Macassan crew

Steer it up right
Steer it up true
Navigate the morning star
Brave Macassan crew

Yolngu people today tell the story of long and peaceful contact with the Macassans. This is evident in a number of song lyrics. The Wirrnga Band from Milingimbi produced ‘My Sweet Takirrina’ in 1990 celebrating that they were ‘trading goods and making better friendship … Macassan men – how brave they were’. In 1993 the Sunrize Band from Maningrida produced the bilingual Lembana Mani Mani singing ‘we commemorate and celebrate for those visitors from Macassar’ and Yirrkala’s Yothu Yindi also has a bilingual ‘Macassan Crew’ in its repertoire where the English text gives a general gloss on the history of Macassan visits (‘they came in peace through the Ashmore Reef ….. navigate the morning star, brave Macassan crew’), while the Yolngumatha passages make specific reference to Gatjing (Dayngatjing), again displaying the characteristic layers of meaning of Aboriginal cultural production.
