Singing in his native Yolngu tongue, Gurrumul Yunupingu uses his self-titled debut (he had previously been part of the massively successful Yothu Yindi) to showcase a vocal talent rarely heard in any culture, but especially surprising against the backdrop of the usually repetitive, frenetic Australian Aboriginal forms. While traditional Aboriginal music tends to be loud and percussive (particularly with the clapsticks), Gurrumul opts for an extremely soft delivery, laying ethereal vocals over the top of a soft acoustic guitar and a double bass only.
