EDITORS’ NOTES

There's no sense trying to describe Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu's vocal performance on this moving record in typical musical terms. His soft but vibrant style brings to mind more expansive words, like sublime, spiritual, and transcendent. Singing in his native Aboriginal language of Yolngu, he’s blessed with a delivery that feels warm, genuine, and utterly unaffected, whether it's buoyed by background singers on the touching "Djarimirri" or presented unadorned on the beautifully sparse "Wiyathul."
