Live version of some of the songs on the double-platinum "Gurrumul". The singing is more robust, less plaintive, and recorded with an enthusiastic audience in Darwin. OK, so the CD is only 30 minutes long. As the Sydney Morning Herald put it, "Listen to Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu and you will surrender to the greatest voice this continent has ever recorded."
If you've heard 'Gurrumul', you'll want this as well - if you haven't, you need to buy both.
The US tour has been postponed due to Gurrumul being ill. Let's hope he recovers quickly. You might want to check in with his website to find out when & where he plays.
There's a reason why any album becomes a double-platinum. It's because people love it so much they'll tell their friends about it, give it for Christmas & Birthday presents. It's very easy to love these songs, and the haunting beauty that Gurrumul brings to their singing.
