Bio

Gawurra Gaykamangu is a Yolngu professional performing artist hailing from Milingimbi (Yurrwi), North East Arnhem Land. With an emotional and resonant voice, Gawurra’s performances deliver a masterful musical sensitivity.

In 2016 Gawurra won the NT Song of the Year in the Pop category, four NIMA Awards and received national recognition throughout the music industry and mainstream media, including ARIA nomination and 4.5-star review in Rolling Stone magazine.

Gawurra’s star has continued to rise in 2017, mounting his first national tour of Australia with SOLD OUT appearances in mainstream music venues throughout the country and as a featured performer at major music festivals. Gawurra has established himself as a “must see” live act, gathering a mainstream following, and captivating his audiences as recorded by the ABC Music team for Double J Live at the Wireless at Womadelaide 2017.

Yolngu people feel the spirit in Gawurra’s music in their hearts. The emotion in his voice touches everyone to build and refresh their spirit, making them stronger through the vine of love. Gawurra is a genuine young leader in his community, a respected song man with knowledge and power. It is important for Gawurra to connect his culture through his music to all peoples sharing the love from small communities of the Northern Territory to the major mainstream international music markets of the world.
