Kwobidak Balladong Boodja Songbook


Kwobidak Balladong Boodja is a compilation of original lullabies that capture the koort, moort and kalyakool (heart, family and legacy) of Noongar families in Northam, in the Avon Valley of Western Australia.

Under the gentle guidance of award-winning artists Phil Bartlett and Cyndy Moody, Noongar community members came together to share Noongar language and learn songwriting techniques.

Once everyone had crafted their songs, participants recorded their lullabies in a pop-up studio at Northam Primary School, with additional musical production by the Lullabies team - Cyndy, Phil and Sean Lillico.

Lullabies is produced by Community Arts Network in collaboration with Noongar families and is supported through the Australian Government’s Indigenous Languages and Arts program.
