Small Island Big Song – Reuniting an ancient seafaring tribe
Speakers: Tim Cole, BaoBao Chen
Journey across 16 islands of Asia, Pacific and Indian Oceans following over 100 musicians, songs, stories and homeland. An Oceanic Songline; a visual & sonic journey following the Austronesian seafaring ancestry across these vast oceans.
The past 3 years, producer Tim Cole and BaoBao Chen have been traveling to these islands, filming and recording with respected cultural voices from Rapa Nui/Easter Island to Madagascar, from Taiwan to New Zealand and asking musicians play on each other’s songs, a powerful, organic, authentic experience with a contemporary message.
We have reached a threshold that our collective lifestyles have directly effected the global environmental, at this level our planet could be viewed as a fragile Island of which we all are the responsible for. An Island too precious to lose.
