Winners; 2013, 2014 2015, & 2016 WA Music Industry Indigenous Act of the Year and 2017 West Australian of the Year (Aboriginal Category winner), Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse have cemented their reputations as artists who capture hearts and imaginations by connecting deeply with rare language through the power of song.
You know when it happens, there's that magical moment when a hush falls over the room; you can feel it, and you know it's special. Yet that's exactly what this dynamic duo have been doing since the launch of their critically acclaimed debut album Kalyakoorl (Forever). You don't need to understand the words; love, loss, joy all mean the same in anyone’s language.
With less than 400 Noongar speakers left, Gina and Guy come armed with a new album Bindi Bindi (Butterfly), matching guitar brilliance with that incredible, incandescent voice. And there's a disarming onstage presence that comes from friends who refuse to surrender this language to silence.
