:The dulcet sound of Noongar tunes and vocals will resonate through the town of Borden when a musical duo begin their statewide tour next week. Noongar musician Gina Williams and guitarist Guy Ghouse are bringing their show Kalyakoorl, Ngalak Warangka to the Borden Pavilion on Friday, August 11, to mark the start of their tour. The duo will send the audience on a melodic journey through four principals koort (Noongar for heart), moort (family and community), boodja (land and connection to country) and koorlangka (children and legacy). Williams is a Ballardong (South West) Noongar woman with family links to the Kimberley. She is an award-winning singer-songwriter and journalist, and has spent the past 30 years sharing stories and songs with the community. Ghouse is an Australian of Chinese and Indian descent and has a rich musical pedigree dating back to the 1920s that influences his guitar skills today. Kalyakoorl, Ngalak Warangka means “forever, we sing” in Noongar and underpins the tour’s aim to connect community values with the audience through the Noongar language. Tickets to the event, which include admission and dinner provided by the Borden Pavilion committee, are available to buy online at Humanitix. A bus will bring Gnowangerup residents to and from the event, and online bookings are essential. The tour will visit other regional towns including Esperance, Manjimup and Narrogin, heading up north to Tom Price, Paraburdoo and Meekatharra, among others.
