Lullabies CD launch and Noongar Radio live broadcast
Kwobidak Maawit: Noongar lullabies from Bunbury is a compilation of beautiful, heartfelt songs from families in Bunbury, in the South West of Western Australia. In the third edition of Lullabies, 19 songs were written and performed on site at Roelands Village in June 2018 and further developed in the following weeks with additional musical production. Written and performed in Noongar by each participant, the lullabies are a celebration of family and community life, and a legacy for future generations.

Lullabies is a CAN five-year integrated arts and language program specifically designed for Noongar parents, babies and grandparents, providing the basis for learning Noongar and transferring the language into creative outcomes, including song writing, storytelling and doll making.
Participants are supported by professional artists and facilitators to learn the basic structures of Noongar, write and record lullabies and hand stitch accompanying story dolls.
Lullabies is produced by CAN in collaboration with Noongar Elders and their families and is supported through the Australian Government’s Indigenous Languages and Arts program and the Australia Council for the Arts. In Bunbury, the project was developed and delivered with local partners South West Aboriginal Medical Service and the Noongar Boodjar Language Centre.
