Gurrumul – Capturing Australia’s Heart

In an extraordinary weekend for Australian music, the release of Gurrumul’s final masterpiece ‘Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow)’ has been met with both unprecedented critical acclaim and public demand with five star reviews and reports of sell-out demand at retailers.
A wave of support built across Friday as people began to hear the landmark record for the first time and took to social media to express their joy, delight, sadness, gratitude and awe at the artistic achievement of Gurrumul’s unique fusion of two cultures into a true expression of reconciliation. The album wedged itself into the #1 iTunes position and has remained unmoved as the most unlikely chart hit of 2018 began its reign.
