This oceanic showcase features eight Indigenous musicians from Aotearoa (New Zealand), Malaysia, Taiwan, Australia, Madagascar, Rapa Nui (Easter Island), Solomon Islands, and Papua New Guinea. Through music, spoken word, and cinema, the audience experiences a musical journey across the breadth and into the soul of island nations of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, meeting an ancient seafaring ancestry and confronting the impacts of climate change as the performers share their islands’ voices.
