Taris Dhamarrandji

Taris Dhamarrandji

Taris was also from the community Galiwinku’ or Elcho Island. Taris was a very quiet student and it was an extremely big step moving away from his very supportive family. Taris entered the program at the beginning of 2015. It was a little tough for Taris as he was Year 11 on his own, with the two younger lads in Year 10 and Raven in Year 12. Taris found it hard being away from his family and for this reason decided to only stay for half a year. During his short time here he achieved a lot, mostly on the stage with Yirrmal and the Yolngu Boys. A very talented musician, we saw Taris on guitar, bass, percussion and back up vocals. The band were certainly the best they have been with Taris joining them. Taris went back to school in Galiwinku’ and we hope that he has set himself some big goals in life as he has a lot of potential. We wish him well.
