We have to give a big shout out to Narrogin Senior High School’s Burdiya Mob for making the finals of the WAM Song of the Year competition.
The group’s original track Djarliny is a finalist in the high school category.
The track was created during a series of CAN music and language workshops facilitated by award winning singer/songwriter Gina Williams and Hip Hop producer/performer Scott ‘Optamus’ Griffiths.
The track’s title Djarliny is the Noongar word for listen and the song is about listening to your Elders and embracing culture.
The WAM awards will take place on Wednesday 17 May at the Maritime Museum in Fremantle.
Good luck, you boss mob!
