Makarrata (pronounced more like McArthur than macarena) is an autonomous cooperative featuring saxophonist Julien Wilson and two Sydney musicians who have called New York and LA home for the past decade. Recently relocated to Melbourne, drummer/producer Felix Bloxsom and guitarist/songwriter Cameron Deyell have collaborated with artists including Sia, Lior, Sam Sparro and The Presets. Makarrata is a complex Yolngu word (roughly translated as treaty) that embodies the concepts of conflict resolution, peacemaking and justice. The group embraces Makarrata musically as a deep desire for egalitarianism and unity representing the eternal struggle to balance individual determination and collective resolve. For the true potential of Makarrata to be realised all parties must accept equal responsibility to seek truth and embrace solidarity. Makarrata seeks to express in musical terms that which often cannot be adequately conveyed with words alone.
