AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From concert halls to recording studios and into the Yolngu heartland, this is the story of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu. It's the story of a great talent revealed and of an astonishing musical gift that has left audiences all over the world spellbound. Part road trip, part biography, the author's illustrated account of Gurrumul's life and artistry takes you behind the scenes and offers rare insights into the sources of his inspiration. In interviews with family and friends, Gurrumul emerges as a man of his people, shaped by the beliefs, rites and ceremonies of a richly engaging culture.'
