The album has sold half a million copies worldwide and his music has become an international sensation transcending cultural boundaries.
Rrakala follows in the footsteps of this multi ARIA award winning double platinum debut released in February 2008, and inexplicably connects with the emotional psyche however, this time more deeply.
Rrakala taps into old songs from Dr G Yunupingu's band, his family's songwriting, his new material and presents a choice of songs that reflect deeper into his Aboriginal identity. Showcased for the first time are his exceptional skills on piano, drums, nylon string acoustic guitar, electric and acoustic guitars. By opening up further, this album reveals more of his rich vocal harmonies which creates a deeper, more complex and as he says "more cultural and spiritual body of work."
About this track...
