Very sad news, unfortunately: the famous and iconinc Yothu Yindi lead singer dies after a long battle against disease.
For many of us, Yothu Yindi was the first contact with the traditional music of Arnhemland through the more traditional songs on their albums. Yothu Yindi's contribution to creating cultural bridges holds a special place in our hearts

I'm not going to pretend that I new him or that I can assess the weight of his legacy. I therefore rather let others write about the sad news here and here but for me, this clearly marks the end of an era.

Well said, Christian.

By all accounts he was a great man and will be sorely missed by many, even those who never got to know him.

RIP Baru.

Really sad to learn this news upon viewing a news website moments ago... I clearly remember watching him in absolute awe at the house of blues, some 16 / 17 years ago...

Thankyou for touching my soul, and may you rest in peace.
Sincerely,

Zed.
