Dr Gurrumul Yunupiŋu’s posthumously released album, Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow), is a landmark moment in Australian music, transcending its author’s death and celebrating his life by bringing together western and his Yolŋu family’s musical traditions. Now, the inspiration behind this seminal album is brought to the stage in a hypnotic performance.
Buŋgul (meaning a ceremony, a gathering ground: a meeting place of dance, song and ritual) is a celebration of that record’s legacy, created on Country in North East Arnhem Land, with the Yunupiŋu family. Live Yolŋu dancers and songmen present the songs, dances and paintings that inspired Djarimirri; accompanied by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra; and directed by Senior Yolŋu Don Wininba Ganambarr and Nigel Jamieson.
Plus booking fee.
