Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu's final album Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow) was the first performed in an Australian Aboriginal language to go to number one on the Australian album charts.

Gurrumul died in July 2017 just after the album was completed. It was released posthumously in April 2018.

Musician and producer Michael Hohnen talks to Trevor Reekie about Gurrumul – a pioneer who overcame blindness to push original Aboriginal music into the mainstream consciousness.
