Djarimirri – Child of the Rainbow


The death of the blind Aboriginal musician Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu in 2017 was felt deeply by those touched by his angelic voice, first with Yothu Yindi and Saltwater Band and then on his solo albums. Four years in the making and completed just before he died, his final testament is a glorious masterpiece of traditional songs given powerful Western orchestrations. A Top of the World in #140.
