Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse – NAIDOC event

July 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Come along and listen to award-winning performers Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse in this special celebration of Noongar language and music.

Join Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse as they bring the ancient Noongar language, contemporary music, stunning vocals, poignant stories and guitar brilliance together for a special performance to celebrate NAIDOC week.

Gina is a Balladong daughter; one of the 14 clan groups which make up the Noongar nation, covering the southwest corner of Western Australia. By official records, Noongar language is critically endangered (there are less than 400 recognised fluent speakers left). Her mother and grandmother, both part of the Stolen Generations were never allowed to speak their languages. Gina wasn’t stolen but was relinquished as a baby for adoption. Telling her story and singing these beautifully crafted songs in language is deeply personal.

And their stars just keep rising. Since 2021 they have released three major works; Koort for the Festival of Perth, Koorlangka: Reimagined for the inaugural Perth International Cabaret Festival and Koolbardi wer Wardong for a sell out season for the West Australian Opera. They also published a book and were part of the pre-game entertainment for the 2021 AFL Grand Final.

Currently they are working on the third instalment of their Kalyakoorl song cycle. Moort will be released at the end of 2023. In 2024 they will premier their next major work, Wundig wer Wilura, commissioned by the West Australian Opera.Performing with the all-important blessings of Gina’s elders and her community, this duo will leave you breathless
