They've been heard in South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria as well as their home State of Western Australia, and now members of the band Jabu are negotiating to appear at the opening of the Sydney Olympics.


The band, made up of family members Delson Stokes Snr, his sons Boyd and Delson Jnr with their cousin Anthony Maher include lively versions of Advance Australia Fair and Waltzing Matilda, sung in Wangkatha, amongst the mix of country rock and desert rock music that makes up each show. Together now for eleven years, Jabu make time to visit schools, and take part in workshops encouraging young people to appreciate culture through music.
