David Hudson's life reflects his love and belief in Aboriginal culture. He comes from the Ewamin (oo-rah-min)/Western Yalangi (people of the north east coast of Australia) so it is natural that he makes his home in Cairns in the midst of the beautiful reef and rainforest.
David has travelled extensively throughout Australia and the World, including Europe, Asia and the USA with world renowned dance troup, "Tjapukai", which he co-founded. He promotes awareness of Aboriginal culture and tradition wherever he travels.
David has a diverse career and is internationally renowned as a musician, artist, entertainer, and presenter. His work is considered "contemporary" yet has a very definite traditional influence.
David is inspired by all the natural elements of his environment and with each work he creates, he wholeheartedly gives a part of himself and his culture.

"The performance of yourself with the Orchestra was one of the most impressive events that I have ever witnessed.I don’t think that there is any secret to achieving excellence- it requires leaders who can create vision and sometimes there needs to to be inspiration. Your performance with the Orchestra provided that.
Thank you for your well chosen words in your motivational speech and the time you spent chatting informally to students and for inspiring our orchestra to move to yet another level of excellence."
