Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse have received two nominations for the 2014 WA Music Awards.

 

The WA Music Awards (known affectionately as the WAMis) play a vital role in recognising the achievements and output of the WA music and industry talent in the year that was.

The winners will be announced on November 7.

 

 

 

GINA TAKES 2014 NAIDOC AWARD

 

Gina Williams was named Artist of the Year at the recent NAIDOC Perth Awards.

 

The NAIDOC Perth Awards honour the outstanding achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, organisations and businesses in Perth. NAIDOC Perth have been managing these awards since 2007. Held at the Heath Ledger Theatre at the State Theatre Centre, Gina and Guy also performed a selection of songs from their debut album Kalyakoorl.

 

In accepting her award, Gina acknowledged and honoured the elders and members of community who had language taken from them, and also honoured and humbly paid respects to those "rare ones in our community who are able to speak language fluently and freely, and who have gently and persistently encouraged us (and corrected pronunciation, spelling and grammar!)"

 

"Thanks to you, we are afforded the chance to start rewriting the script. We are humbled by your trust and support," said Gina.

 

More information about the awards, as well as images from the night can be found here.

 

 

 

KALYAKOORL RELEASE

 

It's finally here! Gina and Guy have released their debut album Kalyakoorl.

 

Kalyakoorl (which means Forever), is a glorious journey into the incredibly rare and beautiful Noongar language. Kalyakoorl is brimming with evocative, beautifully crafted songs and showcases the jaw dropping combination of Guy’s guitar mastery and Gina’s incredible voice.

 

Recorded, mixed and mastered at Crank Studios with Lee Buddle (Kelly Clarkson, Justin Bieber, Katie Noonan, Joni inthe Moon), Kalyakoorl is informed by four principles; Koort (Heart), Moort (Family), Boodja (Land) and Koorlangka (children and legacy). Kalyakoorl features the extraordinary talents of Russell Holmes (Piano), Roy Martinez (Bass), Arunachala Satgunasingam (Percussion) and introduces Gina’s daughters Lauren and Bella McGill (backing vocals).
