Intercultural Lullabies

Intercultural Lullabies brings together family members from different cultural backgrounds within Mandurah, to celebrate diversity through language and song. Community groups have come together over a three month process to learn Noongar lullabies and translate them into a variety of languages that reflect Mandurah’s unique cultures.

These lullabies have been collected into a songbook prepared especially for the Mandurah community, and will be presented to the wider community at the Intercultural Lullabies Celebration! The songbook cover artwork was created by talented local Mandurah artist and illustrator Golia Paymani. You can check out Golia's beautiful illustrations and prints from her website MandArt.

Bring the family along as we celebrate Mandurah’s cultural diversity!

On Sunday 7 November starting from 2pm, take part in a variety of free, family-friendly multicultural workshops and activities for Mandurah Arts Festival. From 3.30pm gather a songbook and watch the lullaby performance begin!

Sing-a-long with the choir, as they perform lullabies in multiple languages, including Noongar, Tagalog, Igbo, Esan, South Sudanese Arabic and Indonesian.
