Gawurra - Ratja Yaliyali - Vine of Love

Gawurra - Ratja Yaliyali - Vine of Love
Gawurra [pronounced gow-rra] is an extraordinary singer and engaging performer hailing from East Arnhem Land. A contemporary of Gurrumul, he has a deeply resonant voice and musical sensitivity. Debut single Ratja Yaliyali won the 2015 NT Song of the Year Award in the Pop category.

Born on Gove Peninsula he spent time as a child on his grandmother’s land of Yathalamara, and now lives on Milingimbi Island. His culture, songlines, stories & history are deeply embedded in his resonant voice & soulful blend of traditional & contemporary songs.

Gawurra is a gentle and genuine young leader. He is an Elder in his community; the Old people gave him this knowledge and power. Passionate about keeping his Gupapungu language strong Gawurra is dedicated to sharing his music and culture with the world.

Ratja Yaliyali [pronounced Rart-ja yarl-i yarl-i] is a Yolngu Songline that translates to Vine of Love; a thread of love that keeps everything connected. When Yolngu people hear it they feel the spirit in their hearts and cry. If they have a problem or feel gloomy, they listen to Ratja Yaliyali as it touches them and builds their spirit back up making them stronger and brighter.

The instrumentation is built around a resonant vocal, atmospheric guitar, simple drums and string section that slowly swells throughout the song.
