Many people talk about language revitalisation, but some people are doing something about it.

Perth musicians Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse have released a new album Kalyakoorl, written in the Noongar language of Western Australia, and it’s bringing the language to a new audience.

Gina and Guy are in the studio with Daniel and Ben on this episode of Talk the Talk.
