Jungaji is a First Nations songman, visual artist, playwright, and activist who has been renowned in the Australian music industry for three decades. First appearing on the scene as a teenager with Aim4More in the 90s, he has now embarked on a new creative path fusing Soul and R&B to create a unique and authentic sound that showcases his cultural roots.
Formerly known as Troy Brady, Jungaji has undergone a deep cultural transformation and found a profound understanding of his identity and is dedicated to sharing his authentic voice and artistic testimony with the world. One of only a small group of fluent Gugu Yalanji speakers left today, maintaining his ancient songlines & stories is of utmost importance in terms of co-existence between two sovereignties.
A proud Western Gugu Yalanji & Birri Gubba man, Jungaji (pronounced Jun-gah-jee) is continuing ancient law by documenting the stories of his people through art, theatre, music, and storytelling having learned these traditions from his elders, and particularly from his last ancient connection to a 106-year-old bush man with whom Jungaji had a life-changing spiritual initiation, and he is passionate about preserving these traditions for future generations. He has forged a reputation based on integrity and has been delving deep into the language and culture of his ancestral lands, talking to elders, and creating art both visually and aurally.
Jungaji was part of a moving opening ceremony performance at Bigsound 2023 alongside son Dean Brady. “Having my son creating his own musical and cultural journey is the continuation of the cultural spears”, he said.
The inspirational intergenerational musical connections continue within Jungaji’s band which includes 14yo drummer Mone Hunt-Feagai who is the son of Jungaji’s keyboard-player/musical- director Jimmy Jam AKA James Feagai.
“It honestly feels like a 30-year apprenticeship. It’s a rebirth, I really feel like a musical chameleon within the many creative changes and more lows than highs but the ancient fires within were always burning strong and to be still standing is nothing short of a miracle. I’m grateful and humbled and to empower others within the musical and broader communities is truly a blessing”, Jungaji said.
Jungaji is also an advocate for those living with Lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that he has battled for 23 years. “Living with Lupus is like going 10 rounds with Mike Tyson” he said, having survived two strokes, two heart attacks, and multiple open-heart surgeries. Jungaji’s holistic and therapeutic approach to his art, music, theatre, cultural workshops, and social activism is his spiritual medicine and he hopes to inspire others to live a full and purposeful life despite the setbacks. Jungaji also passionately speaks to the mental health space, with personal experience of impacts on his own family.

In addition to his cultural and personal pursuits, Jungaji is also the Chair of the Dhadjowa Foundation, a national grassroots organisation that provides support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families whose loved ones have died in custody, to which he represents his beloved “Aunty Sherry” lost in 2020 at the Brisbane Watch house. The Dhadjowa Foundation is a not-for- profit organisation that is independent from government funding and relies on donations, fundraising, and philanthropy. It offers peer support, financial assistance, and campaign capacity building, all of which are family-led and based on self-determination.
Across three decades, along with Aim 4 More, he has been part of the incredible Banawurun (Running Water) Band, Java, the Black Arm Band, and the family group ‘Troy’n’Trevelyn & The Tribe’.
In 2013, Aim 4 More reformed for a special performance at Stylin’ Up, Australia’s largest First Nations Hip Hop festival in his hometown suburb of Inala, Brisbane, to great acclaim and excitement. In 2023 their 30 Year Reunion delighted a sold-out audience at Judith Wright Centre in Fortitude Valley.
Jungaji is sought out for dynamic live performances with his band, as well as his gifts as a storyteller, workshop facilitator, actor (award-winning Barbara and the Campdogs at Belvoir Street Theatre in Sydney) and arts practitioner mentoring youth and adults around healing and cultural ways.
Jungaji has rebirthed into his new creative skin and is now dedicated to sharing his passionate voice and artistry with the world.
