 RIP - Dr G Yunupingu

Probably not huge news outside of these parts but the blind-from-birth singer-songwriter seemingly came out of nowhere to become Australia’s highest-selling Indigenous artist in history. His full name (and images of his face) has been withheld for cultural issues. In a time when a great deal (but not all) of Indigenous music seems to be greatly influenced by hip-hop and before that reggae, he released a number of uniquely haunting and sparse acoustic based records. Live performances were said to be a very spiritual experience. His unexpected death at 46 has led to a national mourning of sorts.
