Australian Aboriginal Leader and Musician Mandwuy Yunupingu Passes Away
Sad day for Australian Music and culture ... former lead singer Mandwuy Yunupingu of the Aboriginal band "Yothu Yindi" passed away from kidney disease.
Yindi & Mandwuy helped to bring the plight of indigenous
Australians to mainstream consciousness. This eventually lead to a
formal apology by the Australian Government in 2008 for the mistreatment
of Indigenous peoples by successive Parliaments, governments (state and
federal) and communities prior to that time.
