Documentary film on Australia's Gurrumul under way

THE ABORIGINAL singer who has become an international star, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, who records under the name Gurrumul, is the subject of a full length documentary which will receive a cinematic release via Madman Entertainment in 2016. Read a press release, "The documentary will submerge the audience in the music, patterns and rhythms of Yolngu life and explore the Yolngu belief system that has shaped Gurrumul as a man and a musician. It will explore the boundaries and challenges that exist for such an artist, and his incredible and unlikely journey from his home on Elcho Island in far north-east Arnhem Land, into the public eye." Gurrumul's latest release is 'The Gospel Album'. CR
