Gina and Guy have recently launched their stunning second album "Bindi Bindi" (butterfly) featuring nine original tracks sung in the Noongar language plus a translation and fabulous interpretation of "Under The Milky Way" by The Church. Gina was awarded Western Australian of the Year last year in the aboriginal category and this album is testament to her absolute dedication and commitment to keeping this beautiful language alive. The album is now available from their on-line store www.ginawilliams.com.au/store
CROWDED HOUSE's spectacular return to the stage on the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House after 20 years brought in a huge rating for the ABC who broadcast it live (643k+ viewers) enabling the fans ex-forecourt to experience a fantastic nostalgic virtual concert reminding many of the brilliant live shows this band performed pre-internet days! Bonus to see my friend Mark Hart on keyboards after not sighting him for 20 years!
Gina and Guy released their debut album KALYAKOORL ("Forever") in 2014. The album is unique in that it is the first to be recorded in the Noongar language. It is a masterpiece and deeply respectiful of the land and culture. Gina was awarded the NAIDOC Perth Artist of the Year Award 2014 which honours outstanding achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. The Western Australian Music Industry awarded them with the Indigenous Act of the Year Award in 2013 and 2014.
