My buddy, Hakea, blogged recently about this amazing musician, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu in a series she calls, Awesome Aussies.

After I listened to his music, I just couldn’t get his voice out of my head and did a bit more research on YouTube.  A Yolngu, Yunupingu was born blind. He plays drums, keyboards and didgeridoo, a wind instrument created by the indigenous people of Australia. Yunupingu has won numerous awards for his music.

This song hits home for me as it’s got a little reggae beat. Listen and tell me what you think.
