Yellow Blue Bus
Yellow Blue Bus: where East meets everything else
Draws on traditional Ukrainian music, updated and contemporised, and blended with a wide range of genres.
The project of Yellow Blue Bus is both to celebrate Ukrainian music and cultural tradition as it migrated and took root in Australia, as well as to recontextualise and redefine the bandura in contemporary Australia and in the world. Given that half of the members are second generation migrants from post-WW 2 Ukraine, the blended mix of YBB’s music reflects members’ lives of cultural fusion.
YBB has recorded 2 albums to date, and performed at many venues in Adelaide and around South Australia since 2007.
