Brass Against the Odds
When the missionaries came to Yarrabah, just north of Cairns, in the late 1800’s they brought with them Brass musical instruments, and from then on the Yarrabah Brass Band has maintained a legacy of music and performance within the community. Seen through the eyes of descendants of original members, we get a snap shot into the lives and challenges facing the next wave of musicians in the newly re-formed Yarrabah Brass band in Far North Queensland.
