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 Saltwater 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. Saltwater 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.
Gurrumul is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
