RTRFM’s The View From Here film series continues, with the release of episode five in the twelve-part series shown on the big screen.

Filmed in the RTRFM office, on Noongar land, The View From Here‘s latest installment features celebrated indigenous acoustic duo, Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse. In 2012, Williams and Ghouse released their debut album, Kalyakoorl (meaning ‘forever’), the first album to be released in the Noongar language. The duo’s uniquely West Australian sound made them a natural choice for inclusion in The View From Here series.

The pair performs five songs, telling stories of Gina’s land and culture with Guy’s rhythmic guitar providing the musical soundtrack; opening with Boorda, followed by Bindi Bindi, the haunting Kalyakoorl, Warangka and the spirited Moordiyap.

Ghouse’s delicate fingerpicking and traditional folk melodies, interwoven with Williams emotive, soaring vocals, is something to behold. Williams and Ghouse adeptly translate feeling through their music and use of the Noongar language. Universal themes of love, loss and belonging are all wholeheartedly delivered, and felt, by the listener. It’s beautiful music that can – and regularly, does – silence a room.
