Burdiya Mob | Behind The Scenes


This Behind The Scenes short documentary captures how Burdiya Mob was made. In 2016, a group of Aboriginal young people in Narrogin participated in a series of CAN workshops where they wrote and recorded the song 'Djarliny', which means 'listen' in Noongar.

The young participants worked with an incredible line-up of professional artists: singer-songwriter Gina Williams, actor Ian Wilkes, hip hop artist Scott Griffiths, filmmaker Poppy van Oorde-Grainger and music photographer Matsu.

Elders and parents in Narrogin were an integral part of the project, teaching the young people cultural practices such as tool making, kangaroo skin tanning, fire making, eco-dyeing, language and dance.

The Burdiya Mob project promoted language revival, cultural pride and creative skill development for this talented young group in Narrogin.
