Summary
George Burarrwanga (1957 ? 10 June 2007), known in life as George Rrurrambu, was a Yolngu man from Elcho Island in Arnhem Land. He was an icon of Aboriginal rock music, and was most well known as the charismatic frontman of the Warumpi Band. Burarrwanga's musical career began in the late 1970s in Central Australia, when he helped form the Warumpi Band, which was also made up of Sammy Butcher, Gordon Butcher and Neil Murray. In 1983 they released the single "Jailanguru Pakarnu" (Out of Jail), the first rock song ever released in an Australian Aboriginal language.This is the fascinating story of George Rrurrambu - filled with interviews, clips and music, we follow George's story from his island home to his premature demise
