Guess who just made to #1 on Transglobal World Music Chart (TWMC)? Drum roll!
"Small Island Big Song" with the album: Our Island.
In this episode, Carla Leininger, of Global Ginga on KZSU 90.1 FM Stanford, spoke to Taiwanese producer BaoBao Chen and Australian music producer and filmmaker Tim Cole. Small Island Big Song is a collaboration of islander artists for environmental and cultural justice. According to Cole, the performance will address climate issues as artists and musicians.There will be sad moments as the audience learns about the imbalances in the ecosystem, but the show will also lift, inform, comfort and get you moving! This episode is also filled with global music grooviness for you from their latest album: Our Island
Featuring footage made during a three-year film trip across 16 island nations and guided by the artists on their homelands, "Small Island Big Song" is a stunning live collaboration reuniting the distant, yet interconnected musical traditions of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The resulting work is a contemporary and relevant musical statement of a region on the frontline of cultural and environmental challenges.
"The most important music documentary you'll see this year," Beat Magazine wrote of the film. Now, combining music, spoken word, dance and film, eight musicians and vocalists from the nations of Taiwan, Australia, Madagascar, Tahiti, Mauritius, Marshall Islands, and Papua New Guinea will perform live at Stanford's Bing Concert Hall. A multicultural treat for the whole family!
“One coherent jaw dropping piece” as described by Billboard Magazine.
