GINA WILLIAMS & GUY GHOUSE
Ancient language, contemporary music, stunning vocals, poignant stories and guitar brilliance. Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse use their music and performances to highlight one of the most beautiful and rare languages on the planet; the Noongar language of the southern corner of Western Australia. As conduits of a fractured past, they have made it their mission to become agitators for a hopeful future, by rewriting the script through song. Because the only way to address intergenerational trauma is to bring healing and invite everyone back to the campfire.
They are a multi-award-winning duo, but don’t let that fool you –they’d much rather allow their performances and the power of the music they create speak for itself. Because even tho there are less than 400 speakers of Noongar language left, their work has always been about what connects us. You don’t need to understand the words; love, loss, joy all means the same things no matter how you say it.
Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse are stunning artists whose music is a celebration of life, community and a shared humanity. Caroline Moore, Artistic Director, Port Fairy Folk Festival
