Musical duo Electric Fields shared Aboriginal language with a global audience during Eurovision.
Having just missed out on representing Australia at the international music contest, the multi-award winning electronic music duo were chosen to reveal the results of the Australian jury at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.
Electric Fields were runners up in Australia’s selection show Eurovision – Australia Decides this year with their song “2000 and Whatever”.
Vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding and keyboard player and producer Michael Ross were thrilled to be given the honour of revealing the jury results.
‘We are so excited to be Australia’s jury spokespeople for Eurovision. It’s the music event that brings millions together for a huge party,’ Electric Fields said in a statement in the lead up to Eurovision.
Zaachariaha often sings in his traditional language of the Anangu people – Pitjantjatjara-Yankunytjatjara.
With this year being International Year of Indigenous Languages it was an ideal stage to share his language with a massive international audience estimated at 200 million people.
