For the second year, the late Gumatj singer, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, was posthumously honoured at the National Indigenous Music Awards (Nimas), with three major awards including artist of the year.

His recently released Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow) picked up album of the year and its title track won song of the year at the awards.

Djarimirri was the first Indigenous language album to debut at number one on the Aria charts earlier this year.

“The history he has made taking a true Australian language and heritage to number one proves the strength of the underlying cultural identity of this nation,” Michael Hohnen, creative director at his label Skinnyfish Music said at the time.
