HARMONY Day will be celebrated in song and dance on Wednesday March 21 at Forrestfield Primary School with the Madjitil Moorna choir and more than 150 schoolchildren.

The Ancient Sands-themed night will feature traditional foods and market stalls, along with the launch of a music video inspired by many cultures.

The song titled Ancient Sands is a favourite at school workshops presented by Madjitil Moorna’s Koorlong project, which teaches songs in Noongar language to children across Perth.

Schoolchildren from Forrestfield, Willandra and West Morley Primary schools will perform songs from around the world supported by the Forrestfield choir directed by Della Rae Morrison.Visitors to the event will be asked to consider their own heritage and the importance of culture.

Madjitil Moorna coordinator Jo Randell said she hoped people from different backgrounds would walk away from the event feeling welcomed and proud of their heritage.

Other highlights on the night will include a sand story re-enacted by Josie Boyle, a sand mandala by Bec Garlett and a Welcome to Country by Nick Abraham.

Aminah Hughes and Beleza Brazilian Drummers and other performers will take to the stage from 5pm to 8pm along with other acts.
