About Us

An Australian made collaboration of voice, sound, movement and change.

Spinifex Gum is a musical collaboration between The Cat Empire’s Felix Riebl and Ollie McGill, and Marliya Choir, an all-female, all-Indigenous group from Cairns conducted by Lyn Williams (AM) and choreographed by Deborah Brown.  Part protest, part celebration, Spinifex Gum is a deep and affecting musical experience.  It has has the power to disarm, inspire, and speak to us in a way that no individual voice can.

Spinifex Gum with Marliya Choir have released two acclaimed studio albums and performed at International Arts and Music Festivals across Australia to smiles, tears and standing ovations.  Featured artists include Briggs, Peter Garrett and Emma Donovan.  Marliya Choir sing proudly in English, Yindjibarndi, and Kala Lagaw Ya, and have made longstanding relationships with families and communities through their music.
