Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t – Johnny Depp

Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence – Robert Fripp

Music is an outburst of the soul – Frederick Delius

Music is a second language to my heart – Mara Arps

Those are some of my favorite quotes about music and how it truly can be a soul touching experience. I must tell you about a man whose vocals have touched me like none other. The man is Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu who goes by the name Gurrumul. First, he has a fascinating story which was featured in Rolling Stone that tells how this blind Aborignial man from Australia has captured the hearts of many with his powerfully emotive voice. He truly can open your heart and touch your soul as he sings.

Gurrumul has recently released his self titled album last month through Skinnyfish Music. The album takes you on a journey through your emotions, capturing the essence of an ethereal presence and is powerful that it can move you to tears. It is hard to explain how or what you experience when you listen. It is almost primal or providing such a nurturing safe haven when you listen. For myself, it was like a window to my soul had been opened and I felt the comfort and warmth of my (deceeased) father’s presence. It was not a sadness as much as an awareness of every thread of emotion I was feeling. It was quite overwhelming and empowering at the same time. To have someone’s voice carry such a power is absolutely amazing. Even more so, is the fact that Gurrumul sings in his native tongue Yolngue and it doesn’t matter if the words are even understood. It is mesmerizing and touching.

Check out one of Gurrumul‘s songs here, Wiyathul here:

Gurrumul‘s songs are 40,000 years in the making as he draws on the stories of the Aboriginal culture, which is older than any other known. I strongly encourage you take a listen, pick up the album that just might change your life. Whatever struggles you are going through, challenges in life, dealing with a busy hectic overloaded schedule, do yourself and your soul a favor. Listen to Gurrumul and take in the beauty of his music, you will find yourself floating in the history of his song yet truly feeling  “in the moment”.
