Yunupingu dies at only 46

Today we have the sad news of the premature death of this wonderful singer, once described by Rolling Stone as Australian’s most important voice. Yunupingu was blind; he was also a left-hander who taught himself to play the guitar by turning a right-handed guitar upside down. This Youtube video tells you a bit about his life as well as giving you a taste of his music. A great loss to world music.

    1. I remember you talking about this once before, Dorothy. What a wonderful experience it must have been. I never heard hm live.
      I see that in the paper today they are reporting that he may have decided to discontinue dialysis knowing he would die.
