    Music: Roots music (folk, world, etc)
    #1
    Post your favorite roots music here or just discuss your favorite artists. Anything goes as long as it is indigenous music like folk, bluegrass, and other non-progressive styles.

    This is Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu -- every time I listen to him, I tear up, can't help it:


    No fucking censorship. Ever.

    I don't know that this counts as "roots", but this song is a very important one to Australians:

    In the first video by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, is there any translated lyrics online? I love the sound of it, but I'd also like to know what it is about

    It's about Gurrumul's relationship with the Rainbow Serpent (called Wititj in the Yolngu language) and his ancestral lands -- the English translation is:

    Quote:I was carried by mother Wititj
    I am a rainbow child

    I am a rainbow child, with a rainbow,
    carried by Wititj, with a rainbow

    Emerged from there, from the water lilies
    Gudjuk emerged, from fresh water Garrimala Dhupula

    I am a rainbow child, with a rainbow
    carried by Wititj, with a rainbow, a child of the rainbow
    in the 1950s my dad looked around
    towards Muwalangallili, Yanayanayu Wurrumbayu Malpitjinuyu (these are place names in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, but I don't know what the English translation is, sorry)

    I am a rainbow child, with rainbow
    carried by Wititj, with rainbow
    I am Maralitja Dhar'yuna with my ancestors
    I am a child conceived and carried by Wititj
    a rainbow child, with a rainbow

    No fucking censorship. Ever.
