Gina Williams: new songs, old knowledge

Monday 27th January / presented by Jeff Bullen Jim Morrison

"Koorlangka means children but for us it means more than that. It's about legacy ... it's about understanding the lessons of the past, both good and not so good. It's about taking those lessons and using our present power and currency to ensure the future generations - I'm not talking about our kids and our kids' kids - I'm talking about another twenty or thirty generations time, making sure it's better for them. Because we've demonstrated for three thousand generations that we've held this land; we've maintained country, culture, language, law and in a couple of short centuries we're now seeing our country burn and I think  the big lesson in this is that we need to turn to old knowledge and the starting point of that has to be music, has to be song ..."

Gina Williams shares music and stories from the new album Koorlangka with Jeff Bullen and Jim Morrison. Gina and Guy Ghouse will launch the album at The Government House Ballroom on 13 February.
