Event description

Description

Double J’s Caz Tran will host an In Conversation with Gawurra discussing the stories behind his music, his passions, influences and his own personal story.

Known for his deeply resonate voice and musical sensitivity, the Milingimbi (Yurrwi), North East Arnhem
Land and now Melbourne-based singer-songwriter and ARIA award nominee Gawurra makes his
Melbourne Recital Centre debut with two special events.


After catapulting onto the music stage nationally last year with his debut album Ratja Yaliyali (Vine of
Love), Gawurra has collected a swag of awards and performed extensively across the country to rave
reviews. Following its release Ratja Yailyali won Gawurra four National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMA)
including New Talent of the Year, Album of the Year, Cover Art and Film Clip. Gawurra also won the
Northern Territory Song of the Year Award for the album’s title track.


Gawurra's voice is truly something else. You don't have to understand the Gupapuyngu language to
become connected to the incredible emotion he demonstrates through his music. Personal and intimate,
his songs are hypnotic, embedded with a personal journey which not only tells a Yolngu story, but an
Australian story, sharing his culture and enhancing the connection between cultures.

‘Gawurra commands attention regardless of backdrop.’ Rolling Stone
‘The rising star of Aboriginal music.’ The Age
