There are few words that can adequately describe Indigenous artist Gawurra’s voice. Soulful, ethereal, otherworldly – these are just some that come to mind. His voice, mixed with an engaging stage presence and an effervescent confidence, makes an evening with Gawurra truly something not to be missed.
After winning the NT Song of the Year in 2016, the Yolngu singer/songwriter has gone on to collect four National Indigenous Music Awards, an ARIA nomination and a four-and-a-half-star review from Rolling Stone. His performance at the Lighthouse last Wednesday night was lacking nothing as he and his band brought their A-game to Darwin Festival. We look forward to seeing more of this fine performer in the Top End.
Foldback was there to capture this memorable performance in pictures. We hope you enjoy our photo album as much as we enjoyed being there to do so.
