Wiyathul * If You Love Music, You Must Have a Listen to This Song

This song to me is the equivalent of spiritual open heart surgery.
I first heard this song sung live by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu at the Byron Bay Bluesfest last year 
”But Dylan’s Not Dead” ”Oh...Isn’t He?”  
as a curtain raiser to Bob Dylan, and it's not hard to hear why he was Dylan's pre-show, when you listen to this angelic song.

I just love listening to Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu sing.

Wow - that is something special. I did look for a translation on Google, even though it's not really necessary. The voice says it all. Thanks for the intro as I hadn't heard of the gentleman before.

If I hadn't tickets to see Dylan play Bluesfest,I probably still would not of heard of him...and I live in the same country as him.
It was a great find and an honour to see and hear Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu play live.Between him,Dylan,Elvis Costello,Buffy Sainte Marie
(not that I heard much of her play this day,but it was a great intro for me to her fantastic music),Tim Finn and Leon Russell,it was one of the most memorable days of my life...one that I will always cherish with fond memories.
These kind of days are truly priceless.
