Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu – Bapa


Kirsten: Well perhaps not finally…I couldn’t resist adding this beautiful example of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu singing in Yolŋu. A language that would be an example of language maintenance?

The webpage below has the lyrics to his songs.

    Thanks for posting this song, Kristen. It is stunningly beautiful and moving (as is his whole album).

    Thanks for this post Kristen. I love this song too and this album too Cath. When you get a chance, have a listen to ‘Gurrumul History…I was born blind’…it’s deep and beautiful.
