Yugambeh Aboriginal DancersGOLD COAST, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA –  From early January 2014 the rousing sounds of didgeridoo, dance and songs will echo through Deja View Restaurant at Outrigger Surfers Paradise with twice-weekly performances by the Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers.

The special performances headed by respected professional dancer and storyteller, Luther Cora of the Yugambeh language region, will celebrate the special bond the indigenous people have with the land, mountain ranges and sea.

The Yugambeh language region spans the Gold Coast to the Tweed River, Scenic Rim and Logan areas and Mr Cora has performed for over 15 years nationally and internationally.  His authentic and passionate storytelling, highlighted through dance and song pays homage to one of the world’s oldest cultures and he has touched audiences around the world.

Outrigger Hotels and Resorts Australia regional general manager, Grant James said he was proud to offer hotel guests an informative insight into Australia’s rich, indigenous culture.

“Not only will our international guests enjoy the Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers, I believe our local guests and diners will also appreciate these stirring performances.

“Many Australians do not generally have the chance to experience authentic indigenous performances in a hotel environment and I believe the Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers will be an extremely popular addition to our guest offering.

“Outrigger Hotels and Resorts is well-regarded around the world for the deep respect it pays to the local cultural identities of the countries where it operates,” Mr James said.

“Originating in Hawaii over 65 years ago, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts shares a close affinity with Australia’s indigenous heritage with both cultures sharing strong connections to nature, land and sea.”

The Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers will perform twice weekly from January 5 running every Sunday and Tuesday evening at 6.45pm in Deja View Restaurant.

These professional performances by Mr Cora and his team are complimentary to everyone dining at Deja View with photos and interaction with the group available afterwards.
