One enormous song. Definately one of the most important songs in my lifetime. Probably the saddest too, beats "Teddy Bear" hands down.

Stick with it, he gets too the english words.

Blind from birth, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu is a powerhouse of musical creativity. Geoffrey, or Gudjuk as he is also called, is from the Gumatj nation, his mother from the Galpu nation both First Nations peoples from North East Arnhemland.

A former member of Yothu Yindi, now with Salbleeper Band, Gurrumul's solo excursions highlight his amazing talent as a singer, songwriter and musician. His beautiful voice will never leave you as he sings the songs of his Gumatj country. His solo performances are a rare treat and should not be missed. Salbleeper Band hail from Galiwin'ku on Elcho Island, North East Arnhemland, and are a much loved and popular Indigenous band, partly because of Gurrumul's influence and guidance. With the release of this, his first solo album, Geoffrey highlights the tremendous talent he has to offer Indigenous music in Australia, and indeed, the world.

One of the most important and beautiful Indigenous albums yet recorded.

http://www.ealta.org/ is the tourism site for Arnhem land. Although part of Australia, its owned by its traditional owners and us white fullus need a permit to get in there.

37,451.9 sq miles of it.
