This joyous collection of songs from Aunty Josie includes two playful new Christmas songs and several much-loved carols sung by Josie in both English and Wongatha, the language spoken in the Kalgoorlie area of WA. Profits from the sale of the CD go to Josie's family.
We are excited to present this Songbook Volume 2, including 13 totally new songs from 10 moorditj Aboriginal songwriters plus four songs from Vol 1, updated with Noongar translations. George Walley’s highly popular ‘Wandjoo My Friend’ has an extra verse, welcoming 18 new animals ‘back to our home’. A song for the Six Noongar Seasons was written by our Koorlong - Noongar songs in schools team - ‘Bibbulmun Bonar’. This has already proved a winner with koorlungas (children). 'It's so nice to have a local resource and having the backing tracks is great for using at assemblies.' Juli Brown, Music Teacher
The 18 Songs in this original book and CD range in difficulty, for different situations and ages. Many incorporate Noongar language of SW Australia. Schools are loving this book as there are so few resources of this kind available. The positive effect on kids as they sing these songs at school (and take them home) is marked.
Please email us with a Purchase Order number for purchase by your school. email@example.com ABN: 40924279346
We invite you to access PUBLIC RESOURCES & EXTRAS on the Home page, for backing tracks, scores and ideas for integrating the songs into the curriculum.

'I received the book and think it’s fantastic. It’s tricky to source indigenous music resources so this book is a godsend!'
Helen Beaton SCHOOL MUSIC COORDINATOR
This simple picture book tells a big story of Madjitil Moorna Choir's unlikely five-year project in WA's remote Kimberley town of Halls Creek. It's all about the great song written with the kids, about 'the best thing in Halls Creek'!
Key players tell the story along with the lyrics of this song , illustrated by the kids themselves. Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oZKblGQWaI for the music video!
