Award winning artist Gurrumul is set to head out on his second national tour to support his much anticipated second album Rrakala, which sees him play a variety of instruments.

Collbaorator Michael Hohnen says “Gurrumul and I have been talking about the best way of presenting a special concert to a larger audience and the challenges of this. On Rrakala Gurrumul plays drums, electric and acoustic guitars and grand piano.  I thought it was a touching but also a more varied performance at Bluesfest in Byron recently where some 8000 people simply stood, mesmerised, and listened for the entire hour, as if we were playing in their collective lounge room. This was a show where we had some extra people play with him – he loves playing with musicians backing him up,” he explains.

There’s also a chance for local bands to get to play with the acclaimed artist. Hohnen says “He is asking me who do I think would like to play with him in the different cities so I suppose the invitation is out there for each city.”  Audiences will be treated to a musical journey taking in both his ARIA award-winning debut album Gurrumul, and the current album that is Rrakala.
