November 20, 2010 to November 21, 2010

Singer/songwriter Frank Yamma will launch his acclaimed new album Countryman at the Toff in Town for the Australasian World Music Expo on Saturday 20 November. Frank will also perform at Footscray Community Arts Centre on Sunday 21 November.

Frank Yamma is a traditional Pitjantjatjara man from Australia’s central desert and speaks five languages. An extraordinary songwriter and an exceptional guitarist, Yamma 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.

Countryman has been receiving great reviews and support from music media and industry since its release in mid October. View the video clip for the first song on the album “She Cried”.
