Djuki Mala achieved overnight success when Frank Djirrimbilpilwuy uploaded a video clip of the group dancing to 'Zorba the Greek' on Youtube in October 2007. Within twelve weeks it had peaked at over 500,000 hits worldwide and to date it stands at over 2.8 million views. The dance was initially developed by Lionel Dulmanawuy, Frank's youngest son. It was created as a thank you to a very special Greek lady named Lilliane who was the main carer of his sister, Priscilla. The funny dancing and comedic element of their performance also has its origins in their community, explains Lionel. "It's a tradition in young boy's initiation ceremony. You make up funny dances and do them at the ceremony to make it more of a fun day for the young boys. Zorba the Greek is an extension of that".
