Djuki Mala (the Chooky Dancers) originate from Elcho Island in North East Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. They first came to world-wide attention in 2007 with smash-hit YouTube clip 'Zorba the Greek Yolngu style' which is now has over 2 million views.

These days, the Chooky Dancers are a professional performance troupe in their own right - touring internationally and adopting their traditional Yolngu name of Djuki Mala (Djuki - meaning: chook; Mala - meaning: a group or a set of people who share a common feature).

At this year's Adelaide Fringe, Djuki Mala will perform over two nights (10th & 11th March) - providing Fringe dwellers with the opportunity to experience an awesome fusion of performance art which combines elements of traditional indigenous culture and storytelling with contemporary dance, ranging from Bollywood to Broadway!
