Jungaji is a song man, one of the few remaining fluent Gu gu Yalanji (around Cairns) speakers among Australia’s First Nations.
He is responsible for continuing the ancient law by documenting the stories of his people through art, theatre, music, and storytelling. Jungaji has learned these traditions over the past 20 years from his elder, Qawanji Brady, and from Babi Wawu, a 106-year-old bushman, with whom Jungaji had a life-changing spiritual initiation in 1991. Jungaji is passionate about preserving these traditions for future generations and is about to launch a series of new independent music, Pilbara Man, Wakka Wakka Woman, Kalkuur (language song) and many more from his recent live shows.
Jungaji (formerly Troy Brady) has had a career spanning over 30 years and has reached the creative peak in writing and performing his new songs.
Jungaji has performed his RnB/Soul music with his band at St Kilda Festival 2023, Adelaide Fringe Festival and BIGSOUND 23 .
