Dr G Yunupingu - Jesu

Dr G Yunupingu - Jesu
Dr G Yunupingu’s The Gospel Album is a dedication to his mother and aunts, who brought him up with songs and lullabies from the church at Elcho Island. As a small boy Dr G Yunupingu was not only influenced by the traditional music of his clan but by the gospel music he heard every Sunday at the local Methodist church. The Gospel Album is a re-imagining of the spiritual songs that came to north-east Arnhem Land via Christian missionaries.

The Gospel Album was produced by Dr G Yunupingu’s long-time collaborator, Michael Hohnen from Skinnyfish Music. It is released on 31st July.

Dr G Yunupingu first came to attention when he released his eponymous debut to international acclaim. His angelic voice connected with listeners worldwide including Elton John, and Sting, who are big fans. The debut album has sold half a million copies worldwide, reaching Triple Platinum in Australia, his second solo album ‘Rralaka’ released in April 2011 has hit Platinum.
