Here you will hear those who sing for the seas. From Taiwan to Aotearoa/New Zealand – Madagascar to Rapa Nui/Easter Island. Islanders who share an ancient seafaring ancestry and language. Over three years, Small Island Big Song evolved from visits to 16 Island Nations, and work with over 100 artists, solo artists, elders, community groups and grassroots musicians, all recorded in their homelands in nature using traditional instruments and languages, with each contributing to each other’s songs. The result is a surprising and stunning musical collaboration reuniting the distant yet interconnected musical traditions of the Pacific and Indian Oceans in a multimedia concert performance featuring eight island nation musicians. In 2018, the collaboration launched its fair trade and climate action driven project through social, audio, film, and performance content on a global scale. Click HERE for artist's website. LU students attend for FREEclick for more info.
