Northam Lullabies Participants


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 2022, Noongar community members came together at Northam cultural centre, Bilya Koort Boodja to learn and share Noongar language, along with songwriting techniques, with talented language facilitators and musicians, Cyndy Moody and Phil Bartlett.

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 sound engineer and musician Sean Lillico.

Lullabies is produced by CAN in collaboration with Noongar families and is supported through the Australian Government’s Indigenous Languages and Arts program and the Australia Council for the Arts.

Thank you to the many local supporters who made this project possible including: Avonvale Primary School and KindiLink, Bilya Koort Boodja, Northam PCYC, Northam Primary School, Northam Senior High School, Shire of Northam, Wanslea- Keedac, West Northam Primary School, Wheatbelt Aboriginal Health Service, Wheatbelt Mental Health Service.
