Kalyakoorl, ngalak warangka, (Forever, we sing), is a celebration of rare Noongar language, and the things we share as community. Over many years, Noongar language has been reduced to a whisper, there are currently less than 400 fluent speakers.
The collection of songs in this book represent the first two albums Gina and Guy have released — Kalyakoorl (Forever) and Bindi Bindi (The Butterfly). And just like their music, this anthology is informed by the four principles of Koort (Heart), Moort (Family and Community), Boodja (Land) and Koorlangka (Children and Legacy).
It is their hope that, through this collection of reduced scores and song sheets, Gina and Guy's music will continue to be seen in new and interesting ways, and shared through schools, choirs and community groups.
"…a beautiful source of language and music for schools, choirs and community groups."
– Heather Zubek, The West Australian
"A precious resource for spreading [Noongar] language and culture throughout communities."
– Happy Mag
