Frank Yamma is a traditional Pitjantjatjara man from Australia's central desert. An extraordinary songwriter and an exceptional guitarist, Frank 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. His ability to cross-cultural and musical boundaries constantly sets new standards through his music.
"Yamma's deadliest album to date could not have arrived at a more opportune time. 4 1/2 stars."
"Countryman is an absorbing and immensely moving listening experience."
"Frank Yamma is going to break your heart, wipe away your tears, then make you cry some more… In the most enjoyable way possible."
