Gurrumul wins double Deadly Awards !

Taking out multiple awards at last night’s ceremony at the Sydney Opera House, Gurrumul scooped up two of the top music Deadlys - ‘Male Artist of the Year’ and ‘Album of the Year’ for Rrakala.

Unable to accept the awards in person due to his current international tour and launch of Rrakala in Europe & UK, Gurrumul surprised the crowd with a personal thank you in English and Yolgnu, beamed in from Berlin.

“Hello, narra Gurrumul. Dhuwala narra Berlin ga I'm happy for that Deadly awards in Sydney ga yo, Djutjutjna Galiwinku ga Australia. Mah! (Hello, I'm Gurrumul. I'm here in Berlin and I'm happy for that Deadly Awards in Sydney... Goodbye Galiwinku and Australia. That's all!

The awards follow a clean sweep of the National Indigenous Music Awards held in August, where Gurrumul picked up the five major categories including ‘Act of the Year’, ‘Album of the Year’ (Rrakala), ‘Song of the Year’ & ‘NT DVD/Film Clip of the Year’ (both for Gathu Mawula with Blue King Brown).

These two new Deadly Awards add to Gurrumul’s collection of six Deadlys since 2008, winning Male Artist of the Year for the third time.

2011 continues to be an amazing year for Gurrumul with Rrakala entering the ARIA charts at No. 3 and going on to achieve GOLD status, while Rolling Stone magazine declared him "Australia's Most Important Voice" (Rolling Stone, April 2011).
