Iwiri is many things: it’s a choir, a community, and a bridge between Country and city. Formed in 2018, the group draws on the choral sounds that emerged in Ernabella in the 1940s, as Christian hymns met the language, culture and people of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands to create a stirring new tradition.
Bringing together Anangu (Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara people) who currently live on Kaurna Yerta (Adelaide, South Australia), today this member-led project embraces music and art to hold their community close — even when they’re far from home. The result is a moving celebration of song, language, community and togetherness.
