The rough guide to Australian Aboriginal music( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in Papuan and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the past decade music made by Aboriginal artists has enjoyed unprecedented levels of success in Australia. Here is a representative sample of the rich diversity -- from country through folk to rock -- of the music which has been used as a vital artistic medium to explore important issues ranging from land rights and the 'stolen generations' to colonial dispossession and racism"--Container verso

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 from North East Arnhemland. A former member of Yothu Yindi, now with Saltwater Band, Gurrumul's solo excursions highlight his amazing talent as a singer/songwriter/musician, his beautiful voice singing the songs of his Gumatj country will never leave you. His solo performances are a rare treat and should not be missed
The gospel album by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu( Recording )

8 editions published in 2015 in 4 languages and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a small boy Gurrumul was not only influenced by the traditional music of his clan but by the gospel music he heard every Sunday at the local Methodist church. Gurrumul's 'The Gospel Album' is a re-imagining of the spiritual songs that came to north east Arnhemland via Christian missionaries. In a musical setting familiar to fans of Gurrumul, 'The Gospel Album' displays a uniquely Indigenous approach to gospel songs but with an expanded sound that combines new hymns, & reimagined gospel songs of his Elcho Island community. The inspiration for 'The Gospel Album' came from a desire to create a dedication to Gurrumul's mother and aunties, who brought Gurrumul up with songs and lullabies from the church at Elcho Island. This is a very big thank you to the beautiful extended families, and is inspired by that upbringing. Gurrumul's own characteristic, special and unusual vocal grace, help to embed these old (and new) songs into the history of the old Methodist church on the hill in the middle of the Galiwin'ku community. We have tried to produce soulful and seductive meditations and hymns to add to Gurrumul's body of work for all to enjoy, and experience and provide a different window into his culture. Each song was presented by Gurrumul as a sketch in a traditional remote NT church gospel style, and were played with feels, styles, genres and arrangements to produce something that hopefully stands alone as a Gurrumul album in its own inimitable way

3 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and Australian languages and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Rrakala'; a sub-group of people within the Gumatj clan, Gurrumul's songwriting and choice of songs reflects deeper into his Aboriginal identity.

Djarimirri : child of the rainbow by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu( Recording )

3 editions published in 2018 in Australian languages and English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over four years in the making and completed just weeks before his passing in 2017, 'Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow)' is Gurrumul's gift to the world, an astounding achievement of music, presenting traditional songs and harmonised chants from his traditional Yolngu life with dynamic and hypnotic orchestral arrangements in a blend of the highest forms of both his culture and our European orchestral culture. It's a final message. A window into his supreme culture. A recording of an iconic artist at his creative peak, and a legacy that will not be surpassed." -- Publisher's website
