Djarimirri (Child Of The Rainbow)
Gurrumul’s posthumous fourth LP springs to life like a new dawn breaking over his Elcho Island birthplace. The late Indigenous singer/songwriter worked on this beautiful, cinematic album for four years, completing it just prior to his passing in 2017. Recorded with members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Gurrumul’s melodies tower above a dense, hypnotic orchestral backdrop that recalls the minimalist compositions of Philip Glass. The late artist’s final work leaves a powerful legacy, gracefully passing down the stories of his culture and traditional Yolngu life.
