The song for our trailer is Yanada by The Preatures. The song was inspired by Sydney Theatre Company’s adaptation of Kate Grenville’s award-winning novel The Secret River, as well as barrangal dyara (skin and bones) a work by Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi installation artist Jonathan Jones.
It is partially sung in the language of the Darug people, and Yanada means 'moon' in Dharug. Yanada is a collaboration between respected Darug song-woman Jacinta Tobin and The Preatures' Isabella Manfredi. The Preatures worked with Jacinta and The Darug Tribal Council to include the Dharug language. (Though pronounced the same, Darug refers to the people and Dharug refers to the language.)
