Visiting Presenter / Music

Small Island Big Song


NYC debut!

“Small Island, Big Song” is an award-winning multimedia presentation featuring over 100 artists (eight of whom will perform live) from a collective of island nations of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The event combines music, spoken word, and live cinema with footage collected during a 3-year film trip across 16 countries, guided by the artists in their homelands. The ambitious project explores the cultural connections between the seafaring descendants of islands that are on the frontline of cultural and environmental challenges. These artists are honoring their legacies and preserving the voice of their people by performing in their native languages and playing traditional instruments. Billboard describes the event as “one coherent jaw dropping piece”.

There will be a pre-show moderated Q&A
