Yeng Gali Mullum – A Reconciliation Choir

Oct 30, 2020 | Advocacy, News, Parliament

Today Rod asked the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs what support there is for the Yeng Gali Mullum choir so they can continue their role in the community?

See speech below

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (12:49): My constituency question today is for the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs. Recently we were contacted by the Yeng Gali Mullum choir, a reconciliation choir that was started by the elders in 2014 at the Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place in Melbourne’s outer east.

Since then they have shared their music across Victoria through a number of their performances. The Yeng Gali Mullum choir is more than just your local singing group. It is the heart and soul of the local Indigenous community, a place to learn and share their Indigenous culture with others through song. Sadly, COVID restrictions have meant that there have been no gatherings at the Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place, a loss of connection and in particular no choir practice. It is the choir’s longstanding dream to professionally record their music and to share it and connect with the wider Victorian community. As a not-for-profit community group they need our help to make it a possibility. The information I seek is: what support is there for the Yeng Gali Mullum choir so they can continue their role in the community?
