Gurrumul’s ‘Djarimirri’ Takes Out 2018 Australian Music Prize

Gurrumul‘s 2018 masterpiece ‘Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow)’ has taken out yet another posthumous award, having won the 2018 instalment of the Australian Music Prize.

The album was released in April last year, following Dr. G Yunupingu’s passing in July 2017. He spent approximately four years creating Djarimirri.

Djarimirri certainly had stiff competition for the prize. Other notable records nominated included Courtney Barnett’s Tell Me How You Really Feel, The Presets’ Hi Viz and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s Hope Downs.

The album has been one of the most celebrated homegrown records of the past year, having picked up four ARIA awards and three National Indigenous Music Awards.
