Back in September 2008 I was lucky enough to capture a special live performance of ‘Djarimirri’ by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu exclusively for The Australian. I shot the video in the Sydney offices of News Limited, in the downstairs theatrette, which has lovely acoustics. This was just as well as I was recording the sound through a fairly basic HDV video camera and mic setup. Gurrumul’s stunning voice transcends all that.
He is accompanied on double bass by Michael Hohnen.
