Burdiya Mob

A group of Aboriginal young people in Narrogin are the stars of a music video clip and behind the scenes documentary produced by Community Arts Network (CAN). They call themselves Burdiya Mob and their song, Djarliny, means ‘listen’ in the Noongar language.

The song was written and recorded during CAN workshops and the video clip was filmed in and around Narrogin, including at culturally significant sites. The music video clip is a celebration of contemporary and traditional Noongar culture and promotes language revival, cultural pride and creative skills development.

Through this project, CAN gave the young people access to an incredible line-up of professional artists including singer-songwriter Gina Williams, actor Ian Wilkes, hip hop artist Scott Griffiths, filmmaker Poppy van Oorde-Grainger and music photographer Matsu.
