Lorrpu - Lorrpu

Lorrpu - Lorrpu
The stand-out feature of a live performance by Lorrpu is his voice, singing in a mixture of Yolngu and English and conveying a depth of emotion as he sings about Aboriginal dreaming stories, gospel tributes and social issues.

Previously of Iwantja Band, Lorrpu's songwriting skills have been in demand, fulfilling commissions to write the Quitline’s anti-smoking song ‘Break Free’ and the anniversary song for Ayers Rock Resort ‘Tjukurpa Ninti’.

Lorrpu has performed at Garma, The Dreaming, Woodford, Adelaide Fringe, Spirit Festival, Tandanya, Desert Fringe, National Indigenous Music awards and many more.

This album was recorded at the CAAMA Music studios in Alice Springs. All songs written and sung in Pitjantjara, Gupapuyngu & English by Lorrpu – Vocals, Harmonies, Vocal Arrangements, Piano, Keys.
