JUNGAJI – Gummy Bamarra

Jungaji, the revered Australian First Nations songman, has released his latest single, “Gummy Bamarra,” on May 31. This deeply moving track is his first sung in the Gugu Yalanji language, paying homage to his roots from the rainforest regions of Far North Queensland. “Gummy Bamarra” translates to “Grandson’s Aboriginal story,” and the song is a heartfelt dedication to Jungaji’s grandchildren, reflecting the profound impact they have had on his life following the tragic loss of their father three years ago​​​​.

The single starts with a haunting acoustic guitar melody that beautifully complements Jungaji’s soulful vocals. As the song progresses, layers of harmonies and instruments build to an emotional crescendo, capturing the essence of love, loss, and spiritual guidance. The production by Cody McWaters, known for his work with King Stingray and The Chats, ensures that every note resonates with raw emotion and authenticity​​​​.

Jungaji, previously known as Troy Brady, blends R&B and soul to create a unique sound that is both modern and deeply rooted in his cultural heritage. As one of the last remaining fluent speakers of Gugu Yalanji, Jungaji’s music is not only a celebration of his personal journey but also a preservation of ancient songlines and stories​.

“Gummy Bamarra” is more than just a song; it’s an exquisite legacy that transforms personal pain into a universal message of hope and resilience. This track is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates music that touches the soul and connects us to something greater.
