Wonderful Indigenous musician from the Gumal Clan of N. Australia.

Born blind he was a natural multi-instrumentalist from age 4 and his people named him Doctor Gurrumul because his music is powerful Medicine. He suffered ill health all his life and passed to the Spirit World in 2017 at age 47.

Quincy Jones loved him and supported an American tour in 2015. When asked how he liked New York he said: “I just want to go home.” Then when he toured the UK and somehow performed for Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee and they asked him how he liked it, he said “I’d rather visit with Stevie Wonder.” smiling smiley

I wonder if Warren knew of Dr. Gurrumul? He would have been a total crowd pleaser at SNWMF.
