Kalyakoorl, Ngalak Warangka! (Forever, We Sing)

Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse ADD TO FAVOURITES
Fishtrap Fringe

Ancient language, contemporary music, stunning vocals, poignant stories, and guitar brilliance.

Over many years, the Noongar language has been reduced to a whisper. There are currently less than 400 fluent speakers. Kalyakoorl, ngalak warangka, (Forever, we sing), is a celebration of the rare Noongar language and the things we share as a community.

Through their passion for the Noongar language intertwined with the power of music and storytelling, join multi-award-winning duo Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse as they take you on a journey through the four principles that guide their work — Koort (Heart), Moort (Family & Community), Boodja (Land & connection to country) and Koorlangka (Children and Legacy). You can also enjoy a Post show Q&A with Gina and Guy.

Gina is one of the most generous artists I know. Guy Ghouse’s beautiful guitar accompaniment, complex, yet not overpowering further embellishes the songs and makes for an enlightening experience.”
– Archie Roach: Singer-songwriter, National Treasure
