This is a very special presentation for YouTube Tuesday. A gentleman born blind, who creates amazing melodies. Gurrumul draws on his heritage of his Gumatj nation from North East Arnhemland, Northern Territory, Australia, and sings songs that emanate from the depth of his heart, reaching out and touching your soul leaving you rejuvenated and inspired. How does someone create such beautiful songs? This performance is extraordinary for his ability to draw your emotions to the surface, surround you with peace, and leave you wanting more. I guarantee you will press replay.
Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu
We first heard this singer-songwriter in South Africa, when we were staying at a guesthouse in the Battlefield's area. The housekeeper's daughter who lives in Australia had recently sent his CD across. Gurrumul remains as a backdrop to our Battlefields tour, the peaceful and inspiring qualities of his music contrasting eerily with the history of conflict and death in such a beautiful land. Returning home I sought out some of his music and now appreciate Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu as the greatest indigenous Australian musical performing artist.
Grab a coffee, kick off your shoes, lean back, close your eyes and let this performance envelop you.
Then share this widely...more people deserve to enjoy him.
