Frank Yamma


Acclaimed Australian indigenous singer/songwriter Frank Yamma is recognised as a musician of intensity, able to spin the raw emotion of life and living it into his songs. Frank's latest CD Countryman is the first release for the new Wantok Musik Label - the first in Australia to focus on the unique music of the region. Yamma is a traditional Pitjantjatjara man from Australia's central desert and speaks five languages. An extraordinary songwriter and an exceptional guitarist, he also has an incredible voice, rich, deep and resonant. Regarded by many as one of Australia's most important Indigenous Songwriters, Yamma's brutally honest tales of alcohol abuse, cultural degradation, respect for the old law and the importance of country are spine tingling. Frank has the ability to cross cultural and musical boundaries and constantly sets new standards through his music.
