Big Name No Blanket 2013 single work film/TV biography

'In the 1980s, George Rrurrambu, the frontman of the pioneering Warumpi Band, made an extraordinary contribution to contemporary Aboriginal music and reconciliation. Dubbed 'the black Mick Jagger’ for his energetic performances, and hailed a legend for being the first to sing rock’n'roll music in Aboriginal languages, George caught Australia by surprise. He left a legacy that changed the face of Indigenous music, uniting his own people and bringing black and white together.'

'George Rrurrambu died a rock’n'roll legend in 2007 and there is no other quite like him. For the first time, this is his story.' (Source: National Film & Sound Archive)
