Accompanied by musician Guy Ghouse, Gina merges powerful singing with poignant stories in English and the language of her Noongar people.
Gina only learnt about her culture and language as an adult, attending TAFE to learn Noongar so she could write songs in language.
‘I grew up not knowing anything about my true history and I've had to claw territory back,’ Gina said.
‘I wanted to learn the language, to write songs so that I could teach my children. It's an incredibly beautiful language – when I hear Noongar language I hear music, it literally sings to me.
‘The work that Guy and I do is informed by four principles – koort, our heart; moort, family; boodja, our land and koorlangka, which is children, but it's about legacy. We're firmly in the business of legacy work.’
