Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu (born 1969) is an Indigenous Australian musician, who sings in the Yolngu language.

He was born in Galiwin'ku (Elcho Island), off the coast of Arnhem Land, southern Australia about 69.5 kilometres from Darwin. He is from the Gumatj clan of the Yolngu and his mother is from the Galpu nation. He was born blind, has never learned Braille and does not have a guide dog or use a white cane. Yunupingu is said to be acutely shy.

He plays the drums, keyboards, guitar (a right-hand-strung guitar played left-handed) and didgeridoo, but it is the clarity of his singing voice that has attracted rave reviews. He sings stories of his land in both languages (Gälpu, Gumatj or Djambarrpuynu, all Yolŋu Matha) and English. Formerly with Yothu Yindi, he is now with Saltwater Band.
