London's City Showcase is proud to announce an exclusive performance by platinum selling Australian artist Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu at the Apple store on London’s Regent Street. This exclusive free performance will be on May 8, 2009 at 7pm.

Blind since birth and blessed with a voice with the power to transfix, Gurrumul has just completed a tour of highly prestigious key concert venues and festivals in Australia and New Zealand. His debut solo album 'Gurrumul' was recently released in the UK to positive reviews and is beginning to pick up consistent radio play.

As Andy Fyfe of Q magazine astutely surmised ...."his celestial voice and his swelling acoustic songs full of dignity reduce you to tears, aching with the pain of the past and hope for the future..."

Gurrumul sings in Aboriginal languages Galpu, Gumatj, Djambarrpuynu and English. Said to have the voice of an angel and has the ability to synthesize deeply traditional sounds and stories from East Arnhem Land and bring them alive and reach beyond his own culture.

Also Gurrumul will be playing for the first time on UK TV on Later with Jools Holland on May 5th.
