Presented by Perth International Cabaret Festival
Kalyakoorl, Ngalak Warangka (Forever, We Sing). Ancient language, contemporary music, stunning vocals, poignant stories and guitar brilliance.
Multi-award-winning Noongar Singer Gina Williams and collaborator guitarist Guy Ghouse have brought wondrous musical journeys to audiences across the world by connecting them deeply through the power of music.
As conduits of a fractured past, they have made it their mission to become agitators for a hopeful future by rewriting the script through song. The only way to address intergenerational trauma is to bring healing and invite everyone back to the campfire.
Over many years, Noongar language has been reduced to a whisper; but in the same way, the butterfly emerges from the cocoon, we are now witnessing a beautiful renaissance of language through song. Because even though there are less than 400 speakers of the Noongar language left, their work has always been about what connects us.
You don't need to understand the words; love, loss, joy all mean the same things no matter how you say it, so join Gina and Guy in the intimate space of Downstairs at the Maj to be part of the conversation.
The four principles inform their work, Kalyakoorl, Ngalak Warangka (Forever, We Sing) of Koort (Heart), Moort (Family and Community), Boodja (Land) and Koorlangka (Children and Legacy).
Babes in arms permitted for infants up to 2 years old.
