Yirrmal is the ‘Youngblood’ (the title of his EP) of the next generation and is setting an example of living in two worlds, balancing between traditional and contemporary cultures. An inspiring songwriter and guitarist with a powerful voice, Yirrmal sings songs in language about life and culture.
Fusing traditional and contemporary arrangements and singing with feeling and depth beyond his years, Yirrmal openly shares his identity, spirit and connection to the land and engages the hearts of those that are lucky enough to hear him. This festival season he will perform with his new three-piece ‘Yirrmal and the Miliyawutj’, giving a rocking edge to his songs. Miliyawutj is a Yolngu word that refers to where the fresh and salt waters meet, inferring a balance between two entities. These powerful live performances are something every Australian should experience.
