"Internationally recognized as one of the world's most gifted didgeridoo players and indigenous Australian artists, Lewis Burns' creation is a ute tribute to the Wiradjuri Tribe. "Because the utes live in the Wiradjuri Nation and I'm from Wiradjuri, it was easy to come up with a design. 'TribeUte' shows the typical life along the rivers and waterholes, with people camping, spear fishing, hunting and gathering."
"Lewis' understated demeanour belies the significance of his achievements as an internationally acclaimed didgeridoo player and maker and as a recognised painter, muralist and mentor. Born in Dubbo, Lewis' early years were spent growing up at Talbragar Aboriginal Reserve and in a variety of towns on the east coast before returning to Central New South Wales.
Working from his home in Dubbo, Lewis travels extensively throughout the world performing, consulting and conducting workshops in theatres, schools and festivals. For over ten years, his talents have been showcased in stage productions, TV programs, films and dance performances in Japan, Canada, Europe and the US. His audiences regularly include international dignitaries, diplomats and high profile entertainers."
