Kalyakoorl, ngalak warangka (Forever, we sing)
Stunning vocals, guitar brilliance, compelling stories and rare Noongar language.
Noongar Singer Gina Williams and collaborator, and 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. Because the only way to address intergenerational trauma is to bring healing and invite everyone back to the campfire.
Over many years, the 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.
They are a multi-award-winning duo, but don’t let that fool you – they’d much rather allow their performances and the power of the music they create to speak for itself.
Love, loss, and joy all mean the same things no matter how you say them.
“The healing power of language was on full display… Williams and Ghouse teach us that our past informs our present, and the lessons we learn have the power to create history.” – Out in Perth
“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
