'Singing is the rhythm of the land' - Aunty Josie Boyle 

Madjitil Moorna Choir are an exceptional group of people who come together for the enjoyment of singing, entertaining and an exchange of language and culture in an inclusive and friendly environment  - Dr Richard Walley OAM, Patron and mentor for MM

 

Delly Stokes from Yabu Band teaches MM 'Campfires' 

Aunty Josie Boyle invited well-known muso Delly Stokes to choir practice (What a gorgeous voice he has! )
Next thing we're learning a couple of his sweet songs for performance  - one of them in just 4 weeks! We'll be recording it for CURTIN TV show, 'NOONGAR DANJOO'.
'Campfires' is a plea to keep culture and stories alive for the young ones. That way they will know who they are and where they've come from.

'Healing Our Culture' was written at the time of The Apology to Stolen Generations in February 2008.

Welcome to Madjitil Moorna Choir!  WANJOO, WANJOO!
Singing ~ Learning ~ Healing ~ Bringing Cultures Together

Everyone is welcome to come and sing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Songs - both old and new, in languages of the country including our local Noongar and English!

We practise on Monday nights in Forrestfield (excluding school and public holidays) and perform all over the Perth metro area and across WA when invited. Grab a USB of songs and your part on it, to speed up the learning and get you ready for performance because that's a real buzz. 

Since 2006 we've been led by award-winning Aboriginal and TSI singers, songwriters and performers who generously bring songs- mostly contemporary - to the repertoire for all to share


Currently, we sing songs brought to us by George Walley, Della Rae Morrison, Aunty Josie Boyle, Gina Williams, Sam Dinah, David Milroy, Karla Hart, Candice Lloyd and Delly Stokes. Kobi Morrison is our anchor man, on guitar with Tori Oakley occasionally on violin and Jo Randell on harmony support. In 2017 we're hoping to learn a couple of songs brought to us by Billie Court. We're always on the lookout for new songs and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Island performers happy to share them with the choir. 

All ages, all voices, all backgrounds accepted. As Aunty Karl Mourach says to everyone who thinks they can't sing, 'That's why you need a choir!'.

See you soon! BOORDA!
