Nganyang Nyit Maawit Songbook


This Nganyang Nyit Maawit Songbook is the accompaniment to Nganyang Nyit Maawit Album allowing you to sing or play along to the lullabies.

A compilation of intimate Noongar songs from families in Mandurah, in the South West of Western Australia. In the fourth edition of Lullabies, seven songs were written at Nidjalla Waangan Mia in Mandurah and recorded at the John Butler Studio at Fairbridge, followed by further development and additional musical production by Charmaine Councillor and Phil Bartlett. Written and performed in Noongar by each participant, the songs are a celebration of the spirit of the land, ocean and love.

The project was developed and delivered with local partners Nidjalla Waangan Mia and The Girls Academy at Coodanup College. The album was launched at Winjan Aboriginal Centre in December 2019, in partnership with the Winjan Aboriginal Corporation.
