If you want to skip the chat in the beginning song starts at 1:24 and thank you to @Dynamaso for the introduction to Briggs (and quite a few others)

I want to talk a bit about Gurrumul, who sadly died in 2017 at the young age of 46 from liver and kidney disease.

take it away wiki:

Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, also referred to since his death as Dr. G Yunupingu, was an Indigenous Australian musician. A multi-instrumentalist, he played drums, keyboards, guitar (a right-hand-strung guitar played left-handed) and didgeridoo, but it was the clarity of his singing voice that attracted rave reviews. He was the most commercially successful Aboriginal Australian musician at the time of his death.

He was born blind, never learned Braille and did not have a guide dog or use a white cane, and was said to be acutely shy.

When he was four years old, he learned how to play a toy piano and an accordion by teaching himself. A year later he began to play the guitar; despite being a left-hander, he played a right-handed guitar, holding it upside down, which he would continue to do throughout his career.


A documentary film titled Gurrumul was released in 2018 which Luke Buckmaster reviewed, stating that: 'For Gurrumul fans, the film is obviously a must-see. For those unfamiliar, or vaguely familiar with his work, it’s an even greater treat: they will be entertained, enthralled, perhaps in some small way changed.
