Geia is perhaps best known for his song and album of the same name “Yil Lull”, regularly described as Australia’s unofficial Indigenous national anthem. “Yil Lull” has been covered by many of Australia’s best-known recording artists. He is widely regarded as a pioneer of contemporary Aboriginal music, first coming to prominence as a member of the influential Aboriginal band, No Fixed Address.Geia was also a key part and founding member of The Black Arm Band.
Stylistically Geia’s songs fit the category of roots music and range from simple Pacific songs to reggae, jazz and funk. The songs are written in Aboriginal language and English, and touch on universal themes as well as issues and history of Aboriginal Australia.
