Lullabies Online

Michelle Troop


Gathering in person was challenging in 2020, so the CAN team took Lullabies online, bringing the Noongar community together virtually.

For the first time Lullabies participants joined Noongar language facilitator Charmaine Councillor and musician Phil Bartlett from their own homes in weekly online workshops to learn the basics of Noongar language and song writing. Then they wrote and recorded their vocals using their own phones and special recording software.

This unique incarnation of Lullabies resulted in the creation of Ngaalang Moort: Noongar Lullabies from Home, a collection of moving songs that celebrate moort (family), koort (heart), and woonya (love).
