Harvest Cafe and The Three Blue Ducks joined forces last Friday at Coorabell Hall to raise funds for the Boomerang Festival.

They presented Ja Nghari (Bundjalung for ‘Food Gathering’) – a celebration of food, country and culture with a special focus on Indigenous culture.

Following the meal and conversation, East Journey performed.

Hailing from northeast Arnhem Land, East Journey will dance on the Boomerang dance grounds at Bluesfest twice daily. They are also a multi-award-winning rock band known for their dynamic live shows featuring dance and a fusion of traditional and contemporary instruments. East Journey perform their full electric set for one day only on Friday at 1.30pm just before Archie Roach.

They will be joined on stage by founding Bangara man Djakapurra who will add traditional dance to this contemporary performance.
