Vale George Burarrwanga

Jock alerted me to the death of George Burarwanga who was lead singer of the Warumpi Band, best known for songs such as My Island home, Blackfella-Whitefella and Stompen Ground.

You can see George perform by clicking here and here or here

or you can watch Peter Garrett, MHR, sing with them by pressing play!

I didn't know his name until Jock pointed it out, and I'm embarrassed about it, because I've heard his music many many times on Triple J.
