Mandawuy Yunupingu is the band leader of Yothu Yindi, an Australian band with both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal members. The name Yothu Yindi means ‘mother and child’. Mandawuy’s full name is Mandawuy Djarrtjuntjun Yunupingu. Mandawuy means ‘from clay’. Djarrtjuntjun means ‘roots of the paperbark tree that still burn and throw off heat after a fire has died down’, and Yunupingu is ‘a solid rock that, having travelled from freshwater, stands in salty waters, its base deep in the earth’.
