FCAC and Moondani Balluk at VU presents Film Real: Black Screen, July
Big Name No Blanket
Frontman of the pioneering 1980s band Warumpi Band, George Rrurrambu’s contribution to contemporary Aboriginal music and reconciliation was extraordinary.
Dubbed ‘the black Mick Jagger’ for his energetic performances, and hailed a legend for being the first to sing rock’n’roll music in Aboriginal languages, George caught Australia by surprise. He left a legacy that changed the face of Indigenous music, uniting his own people and bringing black and white together. This is his story.
