LORRPU single from debut album

Our Music

Added by CAAMA Music

Description LORRPU was born into a musical family, including most of the Gulf Country legends from Arnhem Land. His father was the keyboard player for legendary Top End band, Soft Sand.

The demo version of his song “Lorrpu” (meaning White Cockatoo) won NT Pop Song of the Year in 2013 and is based on an Aboriginal legend of his homeland, sung exclusively in the Yolngu language of Gupapuyngu.

Now his debut self-titled album is being released on 25 July 2016, featuring songs in a mix of Gupapuyngu, Pitjantjatjara and English, including traditional songlines (Wadulunha), as well as songs about social problems such as petrol sniffing (Pitula Wanti).

Dylan McDonald and Tanith Glynn-Maloney at CAAMA Productions were responsible for making the music video to launch this new artist. They are the same team as who created the short film ‘Nulla Nulla’ which premiered at the Sydney Film Festival last year, and since then won an award from the Australian Academy of Cinema Television Arts.
