The track is about the rhythms of totem fish swimming, with Gurrumul singing in his Yolngu language. The new album Rrakala has gone gold a month before Gurrumul launches his first ever national tour of the country. He will play at the Sydney Opera House on August 29 then later at Melbourne’s Palais on September 7. His voice – spine tingling, the sound – soothing. An underrated Australian talent.
