Gawurra dominated the National Indigenous Music Awards this weekend, taking New Talent of the Year, Cover Art, Film Clip, and the prestigious Album of the Year award! Artist of the Year was given to fellow Arnhem Land superstar Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu.
The weekend’s many musical highlights included Gawurra’s award ceremony performance of Goanna’s 1980s classic Solid Rock, with a verse translated into the Gupapuyngu language of his East Arnhem homeland. Gawurra also supported Midnight Oil frontman Peter Garrett on Sunday Night at the Darwin Botanical Gardens, with the two closing out the night with a beautiful Yothu Yindi tribute.
