Partner Event at the UMass Fine Arts Center: Small Island Big Song
“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 on stage with the Fine Arts Center.”
