BRISBANE - YT DiNGO EP TOUR + Calling to Belong (Dance show) + RedBelly (1st Nation DJ)
Time & Location
About the Event
YT DiNGO (pronounced White Dingo) is an eclectic art and music project from the genius mind of Travers Ross that challenges the norm. This abstract triple threat is a versatile vocalist, choreographer and performer, who wittingly disperses his creativity into alternative staged, sonic and/or filmed art, set to appease all walks of life. Sharing the stage with raw urban rock musicians and a down under collection of multi formed dancers that get behind Yt Dingo’s howling screams and original poetic rhyme & dance story telling. The live show similar to online releases show flips in a moment from breakneck hip-hop melodies & electronics, heavy rock with howling guitars to lucid funk and roots movements, with Indigenous influences and artists confirming the Dingo’s clear message. 2018 was a huge year for YT DiNGO, seeing him debut at Splendour In The Grass Festival, and releasing his Debut single Shipwrecked which has been nominated for Music Video of the Year for the Gold Coast Music Awards 2019.

As a down under artist, it shows he’s had an extensive professional career so far. He grew up dancing and playing music from a young age and continued to study a range of arts at Newtown Performing Arts High School featuring on the ABC’s ‘Australian Story in 2001. After graduating from his studies Travers opened and owned very successful Urban influenced schools, creating and directing Utopian Dream festival from and ran events & retreats for artists of all sorts. Travers also has had consistent trips in to rural towns and communities to create art and empower disadvantaged youth and continues to today. THRILL OF THE CHASE MUSIC VIDEO
Trav then choreographed three seasons of the very popular tv show ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ on channel 10. Trav has also been the assistant choreographer and/or performed for many world renowned music artists including the likes of Snoop Dogg, Pharrell Williams and popular Australian artists such as 360, Resin Dogs, Cat Empire, Sietta and Dallas Frasca to name a few. He has toured different parts of the globe with ‘Break’n on Stilts’, vocalist in bands and getting down in the streets of California, New York and Las Vegas with the likes of Swoop Daddi (Aaliyah, You got served, Madonna) and MadLion (Sublime, KRS One, Akon).

Trav now has his energy focused on his current project performing under the moniker of ‘YT DiNGO’. Stretching the boundaries of his musical and dancing talents by merging his love of hip hop, contemporary rock and the rise of the Dreaming into an amazing delivery of entertainment carrying a very strong message purged from his heart. Riding the success of 3 singles so far, with accompanying videos which have stacked up a whopping 150k views online, this is something that has to be seen to truly believe. When! you ask?
YT DiNGO is touring Down Under this year with the released Trilogy of singles and an E.P, to see all peoples ready to unleash. YT DiNGO will be bringing a full night along with a very versatile and diverse band & dancers to rock y’all.
