Description

    A portrait of one of Australia’s most celebrated voices

    Celebrated by audiences at home and abroad, Indigenous artist Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu was one of the most important and acclaimed voices to ever come out of Australia. Blind from birth, he found purpose and meaning through songs and music inspired by his community and country on Elcho Island in far North East Arnhem Land. Living a traditional Yolngu life, his breakthrough album Gurrumul' brought him to a crossroads as audiences and artists around the world began to embrace his music.

    GURRUMUL is a portrait of an artist on the brink of global reverence, and the struggles he and those closest to him faced in balancing that which mattered most to him and keeping the show on the road.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rather wonderful At first I wasn't sure if I liked this CD compared to his other CDs as it is very different. However, after watching the "Gurrumul" documentary DVD, which included an insight into the writing and recording of this CD, I listened to it again in a whole new light. With the orchestral arrangements, it won't be to everyone's liking, but once you know the story behind the making of this CD and what the songs are about it is rather wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great doco of a great man A great look into the life of an extraordinary musician and lyricist. Dr G was truly a great First Nations (Yolngu) man who touched so many people across the world with his gifts.
